sun and moon

promised myself i'd put these two photos up. the first is the space station and the space shuttle framed against the sun. notice how the shuttle is pointed up from our viewing aspect and the station may actually be upside down. the second is a color composite of the moon. yes, the moon does have these colors if you own access to a telescope powerful enough and patience beyond the longest shutter stop. i will see neither of these like this in my lifetime without the help of others.

it's nice to know that someone who can will share:

thanks, great site!

Much as we hate each other, can't stand the very THOUGHT of being near one another, we should hang out...I have always loved astronomy.

Here in Paris, the moon looks so..romantic, and yet still scientific at the same time.

And speaking of Uranus...

by scientific you mean it wears glasses and a pocket protector, yes?
