Farewell Summer of 2012

With summer ending, the Phillies collapsing, and the end of the world coming with the Mayan calendar crap (which is all a load of poop), I figured I should post a connecto pic of a Rehoboth Beach sunset I’ve had lying around my cell phone memory for 4 or 5 months.

Maybe you haven’t noticed, but I am doing some image house cleaning on my cell phone memory chip. Enjoy!

Rehoboth Beach sunset

As always, click the image for the biggy!

The Transit of Venus

Cool NASA video made using different wavelength images from the Solar Dynamics Observatory showing Venus as it orbits in front of the sun.

Its pretty humbling if you consider that the Earth and Venus are roughly the same size. Seems from these images that the ancients had it right…all hail the Sun. The only true power that controls all of our destinies…

Fly by Night, Goodbye my Dear. My ship isn’t coming and I just can’t pretend.

That’s right Getty. Asteroid YU 2055 will be making a fly by on Nov 8th between the earth and the moon. It is also close enough to be a great radar target…and we in eastern North America should have a good view of it whizzing by even under the full moon light.

And just in case you think it’s no big deal…watch this. It never gets old…and makes all of our problems seem like nothing…

6 Million Miles Away

Check out this picture of the Earth and the Moon from 6 million miles away courtsey of NASA’s Juno spacecraft on its way to Jupiter:

I never get tired of seeing pictures of our Earth/Moon from vast distances away in space. It is truly a humbling sight. How can my problems seem so big on a place so small that is so big, yet so small…

Solar Flare Blowback

Yep.  The I-Sun’s love explosion is set to hit us today.  Here is a pretty cool animation courtesy of NASA showing the money shot:

So for those of you in the higher lattitudes, go out from the cities and see if you can see the faint glow of the I-Sun’s love.  And as always…a great time to back up your files.

 

 

 

WOOOOOOO! 2 HOURS TO GO TILL THE END!!

I’m still hoping for complete and total INSTANT oblivion. Like a light switch to a dimension of nothingness!

GO NOTHING!   GO NOTHING!    GO NOTHING!    WOOOOOOOOOOOO!
