Which planet is this? Which space probe took the pictures used to build this big picture? What general feature are we seeing in this picture? Have you ever seen this planet from this perspective before this picture (I haven't)? I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have!!!!

April 11-20 is the final opportunity to participate in GLOBE at Night this year. Go outside an hour after sunset (8-10pm local time), look up, use one of their magnitude charts to measure how dark your local sky is and report back to them.

That should be "know" not "no".  Been a long day.

Just joined Atheist Nexus and found this group.  Amazing, it's astronomy that really helped me to become a critical thinker and no that religion is just a myth.

I have a roll off roof observatory in the mountains of San Diego with a 14" Meade LX200 GPS telescope.  Although it doesn't get a lot of use with my current work schedule, I've been doing this hobby for 40 years and can't learn enough.  I do enjoy doing outreach for local schools and groups and am the founder of "Julian StarFest", a three night star party, public outreach and vendor exhibit in Julian, CA.

Hope to enjoy the discussions here.
