    pretty sweet shot. I tried to get a shot of the moon this morning because it looked so awesome with the sun coming up under it but I don't know if it came out well at all. What you see with your eyes is so rarely captured in an image of the sky unless you have a really nice camera.

    Apparently Nasa will be making a "major announcement" of "exciting news" about the Moon. I'm really curious what that could be...

    ALIENS!!

    Last night I watched Werner Herzog and Clive Oppenheimer's new doc about meteorites..... and I liked it..... particularly the section featuring micrometeorites. Every day, approximately 100 metric tons of stardust collide with Earth! I'm thinking of picking up Jon Larsen's two books on the subject, In Search of Stardust, and On the Trail of Stardust. The former being full of great photos of magnified micrometeorites, and the latter being an instructional guide for finding micrometeorites.
    The doc is called Fireball: Visitors From Darker Worlds, and it's on AppleTV+.

    The Great Conjunction is in the news, does that mean the Republicans - I mean the Skeksis - will be going home soon?

    Persy is set to land on Mars tomorrow!

    NASA's toolkit to experience the landing, aka worrying to death with the team for the seven minutes Persy will be unreachable, can be find here: https://mars.nasa.gov/mars2020/timeline/landing/

    GO PERSY!

    They have 23 cameras on Percy right? Is NASA actually going to have the feeds from those going during the stream or are they going to gather and release that footage at a later time?

    The cameras will not be filming but it is possible that photographs could be sent. Perseverence will send signals to indicate how the landing process is going. It has to land all on its own, without help from NASA. All NASA can do is cross fingers and hope for the best.
