  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  9. Photo may be first of extrasolar planet -- A group of European-led astronomers has made a photograph of what appears to be a planet orbiting another star.

  16. Telescopes for youngsters

    Anyone have any input on what a good telescope would be for an 8 year old? He's "interested" in the whole thing, and I'd like to get him one, but fear breaking the bank on something he will give up on before too long. I also don't want to get some cheapie that he can't really enjoy and loses...
