Having access now to now. And this is over amazing! Here are some test runs:

Comets are balls of dust and ice (ice being water ice, methane, and other frozen gasses). Some, like C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) are long period comets, believed to originate from a large cloud of comets around our solar system known as the Oort Cloud.

Forgot to post these pictures that I took with my iPhone from the @pastronomical dark sky site a few weeks ago.

Bortle 4 sky only an hour’s drive from my Bortle 8 backyard! 🤩

Excited to share that the Unistellar #exoplanet observing program is officially a "Guest Investigator" for the NASA Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) mission & is now funded by NASA’s Astrophysics Division!

I see even more sleepless nights in my future -- and I can't wait.


Here have some photons from space that I caught with my camera sensor just before they crashed into my driveway

Off to LA to observe through the telescopes at Mount Wilson Observatory 🔭

I cannot express how excited I am for this opportunity 😭

So now, after the announcement was made that there will be two #Ingenuity class helicopters flying to Mars on the next freight, the real question for #Ingenuity's fans is:

- What will be the extra capabilities of the new Mars Helicopters, besides those needed for fetching sample tubes from the surface?

Because, almost certainly, #Perseverance will be able to deliver the samples to the MSRL by itself, in which case the 2 helicopters will have nothing to do. That doesn't sound prudent.
