Let's See . . . . What's New?

Tons of things, like tonight a Lunar Eclipse entertaining Earthlings in the Western Hemisphere. Always a nice show for terrestrial sentients, if anything to pry people away from the gadgets and gizmos for a second to look up into the heavens. Check out the Astronet, a Dutch-based website on all things astronomical, for a preview of this celestial event.

My favorite website for world affairs, antiwar.com, is having their regular fundraiser. I would encourage all armchair foreign ministers who care about war and are angered at those who advance it to support this important web-based portal to alternative viewpoints on the state of the world today.

Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day shows a certain Hans Schlegel, a German astronaut, doing a spacewalk and working on the Columbus Laboratory which is now a part of the International Space Station. Note the German flag on his sleeve.
