Personally, I don't think there's intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

Luner eclipse 2/20/08

Looking at the eclipse through the clouds was no fun so I decided to go to bed a little early. Before going to sleep, I adjusted the blinds so I can see the moon with my head on the pillow. A half hour later, my wife comes to bed and wakes me up. I look through the blinds at the now, total eclipse. I now had to get out of bed to watch for a little while. Being it was about 14 degrees outside; I decided to watch through the window. With no obstructions, I grabbed my camera. I figured that I wouldn't get any good photos through the window. This is one of the better photos taken that night.

The moral of the story is, you don’t have to freeze your :)) off to observe or to take a half way decent photo.

 

Luner eclipse  2/20/08

Moon or Mars?

Hey Angelo, when I first looked at this picture I thought it was a picture of Mars!

Cold Weather

Wasn't there a Christmas solar eclipse not long ago that was really cold?   The wind was hollowing and it was about 3 degrees F.
