    I just saw the moon

    Hop test!!! Holy flying beer can, lol. Do you all know that Hubble is 30 years old? Amazing that it is still providing us with such splendor. Looking deep into the universe, the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope catches a passing glimpse of the numerous arm-like structures that sweep around...

    I just saw the moon

    I was watching Science Channel tonight and "The Planets" was on hosted by astronaut Mike Massimino and it was about Jupiter. Lots of stuff from the Juno probe as well as Voyager, Galileo, and Cassini, great show if you haven't seen it. Jupiter is another one of my favorite things to look at; I...

    Splashdown of Crew Dragon! Awesome job SpaceX, NASA, Doug, Bob, and all the engineers and people who made this happen. This is historical, first private comapny to launch and return humans to space. This is just the beginning folks, I can't wait to see what's next (hop test of starship!). The...

    I just saw the moon

    This is pretty awesome...normally, Steamboat Point looks cool, but not this cool. Every day, the iconic peak of the Bighorn Mountains is an interesting sight, in particular from US Highway 14 in Wyoming. On some rare days, the rocky vertical ridges look even more incredible when seen in front of...

    That's my issue, Trulieve is the only one of the 4 in my area that is a one stop shop every time. I really wish the others would do more...heck, we don't even have a RISE or a GrowHealthy here, 1st time hearing of those! Trulieve was shiwng on their tv advert that they had kief, I asked, it...

    I just saw the moon

    In my opinion, galaxies, nebulas, and supernova remnants are some of the most majestic things there are to see. I had shrink a couple of these down to get the image host to accept them; the full size are just amazing to behold...these will suffice. This Hubble Space Telescope photograph...

    NEOWISE in the Spanish Pyrenees by Maxime Daviron NEOWISE in Germany by Markus Bauer and a bonus meteor as well! I'm really looking forward to this and the James Webb telescope (holy crap how many damn delays with Webb). When it launches in the mid-2020s, NASA’s Nancy Grace Roman Space...

    We don't have a Rise here :(. The selection today was bleak at all 4 shops around here. Only went to Trulieve. They messed up after I got there and a few people went ahead of me that shouldn't have...they threw in 10% off because of that on top of my 20% vet...and I had enough points to get...

    I just saw the moon

    NEOWISE's two tails are clearly seen in this best I've found image so far of this awesome comet. The blue ion tail on the left points directly away from the Sun and is pushed out by the flowing and charged solar wind. Structure in the ion tail comes from different rates of expelled blue-glowing...

    I just saw the moon

    @BabyFacedFinster I believe what you are describing is a sighting scope, a smaller scope (like a rifle scope) that's mounted on the outside of the tube and sighted so that it's center would closely match where the main objective lens would look. If you don't have a rifle scope, what I would try...

    I just saw the moon

    Thank you @Jill NYC for that and I actually was a Computer/Networking professor for 15 years. IIRC the Jupiter image above from Hubble is a visible light image so whatever is there is what we would see if we were out there, full atmosphere image with nothing stripped away. I think with Jupiter...

    I just saw the moon

    I saw NEOWISE last night since I finally got a night with no clouds to the NW. Went to where I work and myself and one of the building engineers went up to the roof (7 story building). NEOWISE was in the NW low sky. Unfortunately I could not get a good shot with my cellphone and binoculars...

    All good bro. I prefer to go to them due to me not living alone.

    I just saw the moon

    Thank you @BabyFacedFinster for the kind words. You got me thinking with your post of Venera. In my opinion, a great achievement by the Soviet Union. It is no small feat to endure the pressure on Venus, which it eventually succumbed to. And they did it many times, first with hard landings (which...

    Comet NEOWISE is visible in an aurora-filled sky in this photo by Aurorasaurus Ambassador Donna Lach. The photo was taken early on July 14, 2020, in western Manitoba, Canada. The purple ribbon-like structure to the left is STEVE, an aurora-related phenomenon discovered with the help of citizen...

    I just saw the moon

    I've come across a lot of NEOWISE photos that don't look "natural" to me. Even the Stonehenge one I posted I am a little uncertain. I will tell everyone this, all the Juno images are "enhanced" from the raw data...in fact most of the great pics we see from Hubble, Spitzer, Chandra, etc are all...

    As much as I wanted to try delivery, it just seemed like too much trouble.

    omg you missed my point, but ok. If I was paying attention...yes I was and am. That brief and serious stumble set off a chain reaction that made things MUCH worse than they would have. No comment on how they bought tons of PPE BEFORE letting the world know? I'm done, everyone please wear a mask...

    COVID-19 News

    I can agree with your last statement, however, it came from China to the west coast and from Europe to the east coast from what I saw. Scientists even identified them as slightly "different" strains. And "downplay" is a bit of an understatement. Regardless, imho, our country was way too slow to...
