Pics my dad would have loved to see:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • The International Space Station silhouetted as it passed in front of the full moon October 6, from Ed Morana's ISS Transits Page, which has video (via Kevin Vranes's No Se Nada and the amazing Space Weather.)


  • "Saturn's Lovely Ears" at Carl Zimmer's The Loom, taken September 15 by the Cassini probe.  More at CICLOPS.


  • If you're going to be awake in the wee hours this weekend and near the lakeshore or other dark place, Sky & Telescope magazine's Skytonight.com tells you which way to look for the annual Orionid meteor shower (historical average: one nice shooting star about every 3 minutes). No equipment necessary.
