Oooh, look!

Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day is especially gorgeous. I'm not posting it directly because it's not a NASA picture, so the copyright is private. Go see! Of course, that link will be to a different picture tomorrow, so if for some VERY odd reason you don't check this blog daily, go find the APOD for December 12 2008.

Nice, hm?

Tonight's full moon will be lovely too, if we can see it, which seems unlikely because it's been overcast and raining for about six months now. OK, a few days. But still.


  1. Are you sure that's not the Great Pumpkin, arising a little late this year?

  2. Gorgeous, wasn't it?

    Skies cleared up here for perigee tonight. Bright bright moon... should make for some great tidal range, too.

  3. we are LOVING the full moon. My kindergartner is studying the moon cycles at school all year. I love it. Very romantic.
