  1. American Total Solar Eclipse' of 2017

    I have always been interested in Astronomy. I spent time on a cold mountain with my brother as he took photos in his frankenstein telescope. Of all the events which fascinated me, most are eclipses. Suppose because they do not take close observation but like a show for the masses. Observed...

  2. Trappist-1

    So, scientists seem to have found a very interesting neighborhood that might prove to be worth exploring. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/22/science/trappist-1-exoplanets-nasa.html?smid=fb-nytscience&smtyp=cur&_r=0 7 "earth-sized planets" orbiting a dwarf star a mere 40 light years away. ...

  3. Planetary Perspectives

    It's hard to grasp the enormity of "what's out there" and this chart brings that home even more. Whether you attribute it all to a higher being or to something along the lines of the big bang theory, it's awe inspiring! See 2nd post!

  4. Particle Drift?

    I'm not certain that's what it was called. A few years back I read a theory hypothesis that goes something like this: If there are parallel Universes, then it could be reasonable to assume that the unfolding of each Universe would be pretty much copies of the first one. Which means you exist...

  5. Not comets? Aliens?

    I had not read much on this star, but it is apparently causing a bit of a stir in the world of Astronomy and the search for alien life. Comets May Not Explain "Alien Megastructure" Star's Strange Flickering after All - Scientific American...

  8. 25th Anniversary of Carl Sagan's "Pale Blue Dot" Image

    I first learned of the Pale Blue Dot about 13 years ago while on Ubuntu Forums when the internet was still quite new to me. Those years were fascinating because it was then that I was experiencing the newness of the vast amount of knowledge and information I now had access to. The information was...

  9. Light Years Away & All That.

    The size of the universe is unknown. Is the universe infinite with no end? I guess that's easy to accept simply because, as Carl Sagan once said "The Cosmos is all that is or was or ever will be." I mean that isn't like a very profound observation because if it wasn't then there would have to...

  11. Perseid is coming!

    No matter where you live worldwide, the 2013 Perseid meteor shower will probably be at its best on the nights of August 11 - 12 and/or August 12 -13. Before the dawn viewing is best. From northerly latitudes, you often see 50 or more meteors per hour, and from southerly latitudes in the southern...

  12. Super Moon - June 23, 2013

    Be sure to check out the sky tonight to see the moon at its perigee and if you're lucky it won't be rainy/overcast! I tried to take some photos of it last year but didn't have much success. The photos simply didn't come close to capturing its beauty but maybe someone here with better photography...

  14. The Extraordinary, Extraterrestrial Cosmos … Or Words To That Effect.

    All that we are aware of (know) is about 14 billion years old. That, give or take a gazillion years or so, is the approximate age of the Universe, which was so beautifully described thus, by a genius, the late Carl Sagan: “The Cosmos is all that is or ever was or ever will be.” According to...

  16. Simply a Cosmic Story

    If the sun represents Visnu the moon, Siva. The argument which is greater Visnu or Siva simply opened the portal for Kaliyuga to come into our lives. Followers of Visnu say Siva`s effulgence or moonlight is but a reflection of Visnu`s radiant light. In reality however, there`s no greater or...

  19. Smile Universal Wavicle Mechanism.

    Perhaps dark energy/cosmic expansion is simply an affect of a big crunch? Allow me to elucidate;- When a 'crunch' condenses below its Schwarzchild Radius, I propose a duality is formed, being the Lorentz Transform imaginary values associated with <Sr distances - we know time = 0 at an event...
