It’s also one long ass day. The summer solstice.  Good times.  11:24 pm CDT. I was looking for a good solstice related movie.  There’s a few to choose from.  I read an article in which the author questioned why anyone … Continue reading

Equinox – the only equality happening today

The September equinox happened this morning.  Axis and orbit conspired to set things just right.  If only for a little while. You probably already knew this if you happen to have an ancient stone observatory in your backyard.  Like folks … Continue reading

Asteroid Day is a thing and it’s today

Today is Asteroid Day.  It’s only the second annual Asteroid Day, so I don’t feel that bad having it sneak up on me like this.  I have set five reminders on three different calendar apps just to make sure I … Continue reading
