This
really intersts me and I'm posting it for anyone who enjoys
astronomy and/or astrology. A Vernal Equinox will happen
tomorrow.

U can also go to
the NASA site for great pictures and info.

http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap100918.html

Here is another
page about the "Autumnal Equinox." or Harvest Moon.

http://news.nationalgeographic.....n-science/

Coinciding with
the Autumnal Equinox ( Sept 22) a rare Vernal Equinox on Sept.
23,2010 is set to take place. This will happen once in a
lifetime.

The Sun, Earth,
Moon, Jupiter and Uranus will align.

"It takes the
Earth 365+ days to orbit the sun, it takes Jupiter 12 yrs, and
Uranus takes 84 yrs"

From:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v.....O3XL_boh7g

Apparently some
rather large natural disasters take place when certain alignments
happen. ( NFL just had the worst hurricane this century cause a lot
of damage) It will be interesting to see what else, if anything,
happens or not.

The power and
beauty of Nature always amazes.

Either way,
tomorrows sky will be lovely to take in. Better if anyone has a
telescope and a clear sky.

It's supposed to
be cloudy here and raining for the next few days. (Sucks for
me)

Thanks MsG. I'm contacting my friend who has a telescope. I
hope it's clear here. It's been cloudy too.

hehehe That's a very 'hard' question to answer there
Bevivacious.

It's been said
that the mass of the ass divided by the heat of the meat is
proportional to the angle of the dangle.

..or so the legend
goes.

Did
anyone get to see uranus this past week? It was too cloudy here to
get a good look. With a high powered telescope you can sometimes
get a glimpse of the ring of dust and ice that surrounds
uranus.

Hmmmm
It was cloudy here too. I don't have a telescope powerful enough
either.

I visit Nasa's
Image gallery for a fix.

Did I
see Uranus with a telescope this weekend, well no but I did see
something similar. *Anyway* I like telescopes, its true. I like
microscopes. There's someone who sells them for $250 on Ebay. I
might get one some day just for fun. I want one with 2000x
magnification or something.

I
want a good telscope too but i have SO many other things that are a
priority.

I have an old
Tasco 15-45X zoom, Monocular, Telescope, that is good for land
viewing and observing the Moon.

Looking out to
space makes me feel ALIVE!( and grounded)HA!

I...
am close to buying a microscope. Gotta make a choice between two
models. Yes! A binocular one with high magnification. I should look
on Craigslist for an old telescope sometime too.

I'm gonna buy it
to give myself a treat since I've always wanted one. I want to look
at insects and stuff, the natural world. Gonna pamper myself. Its
around $200.

CraigLook lists
all the stuff on craigslist. The only thing is they're always far
away but if I want it bad enough I could persuade them to ship it
to me. Its listing some cheap telescopes.

some
communities have astronomy clubs that host star parties. Or some
national/state/county/city parks or universities or museums may
have star parties too. Ask around, you might could see the stars
without having to buy a scope at all.

As for good prices
on microscopes... try your local university. You might be able to
get a used one real cheap. When I taught biology we tried to buy
the university hand me downs, they were cheaper and better quality
than what we could have gotten otherwise. If you want to look at
nature without going to a cellular level, you might want to look at
getting a steroscope. But if you are into cells, then a high
powered microscope will be the only way to get views of
that.

I love looking at
pondwater and identifying all the microorgs. Tartigrades are my
favorite because they are easy for the kids to find and are sooo
incredibly interesting. Even middle school children showed an
interest.
