Way cool! Am a sucker for astronomy…
And the following is the explanation about the video:
An amazing and eccentric man passed away. He made me enjoy astronomy so much with his show Sky at night which ran for a full 50 years!
from Io9, quite a brilliant article to think about…
Gotta love watching the skies… Got payday today and am finally gonna buy me a telescope that I have been glancing at for 1 year now. The 1st telescope I got was at 17 which was a disaster of a telescope for 800 swedish kronor (about £70), could see a fuzzy moon that was about it but I loved it to bits…

The final colour of an asteroids indicates how closely it comes to the inner solar system.
Earth Crossers are Red
Earth Approachers (Perihelion less than 1.3AU) are Yellow
All Others are Green
Ok, I know this is geeky but I do love astronomy and the new science but do read this article, quite fascinating. You think that planets are nice round things and then you find out that they are eating as well, damn.
Jupiter became the solar system’s biggest planet by consuming its chief rival, a massive rocky planet ten times bigger than Earth. New discoveries suggest Jupiter and Saturn learned a lesson from their mythological namesakes, "eating" any planet that opposed them. Read more at Io9…
