  •   You’re lost in the woods. The coyotes are hungry. You don’t have a map. Or a compass. Or a flashlight. Or a cellphone. You’re trapped inside an arboreal prison. How are you going to breakout and find your way back to camp? Shhh…did hear that? The coyotes are howling. Quick. Let’s get out of here. So… …here’s the plan.

  •   Earth’s Moon has quite the attitude, but don’t worry! It’s just going through a phase. Teenage astronomical objects can be unpredictable and very moody. The Moon is at least 4.53 billion years old, but that doesn’t stop it from having 8 unique phases, which means the Moon probably has a personality disorder. Try not to judge. We all go through phases, right? Some of us dye our hair unusual colors, while other people wear leopard skin pants.   Moon Phases [Click Here To Read Article...]
  •   You look like the type of smart individual who likes to read about space clouds. Did you know it’s possible to see the Orion Nebula with nothin’ but those squishy orbs inside your face? The universe looks like an angry toddler tossed a handful of sparkly glitter all over the place, which means it can be a pain in the ass to navigate the night sky. Don’t be intimated by the sparkly mess above your head. M42 (Orion Nebula) is one of the most popular space clouds. Period. [Click Here To Read Article...]
  • Size is matter of perspective. Small objects may seem large if observed through a different pair of eyes. How long would it take you to stroll across a field? Forget the fact that you possibility “ran” a 25 minute mile in gym class, or the fact that the teacher would have needed a sundial to truly time your efforts. Forget all that. Now imagine a hypothetical flea. This hypothetical flea is perched on a blade of grass. How long do you think it would take your imaginary hypothetical [Click Here To Read Article...]

      Wouldn’t it be cool if the sky was brought down to Earth? Imagine if you could reach in your closet and select your very own atmospheric phenomenon. Do you want to become a living embodiment of airy ethereal forces? Mother Nature ensures the fickle characteristics of kaleidoscopic optical manifestations. Not anymore. You can now summon your own sundog, and look damn good doing it!     Sundogs appear out of thin air—hexagonal ice crystals refract light into a colorful [Click Here To Read Article...]
  • The universe is a giant amusement park, and you’re not welcome to climb aboard the pretty galactic Ferris wheel. Why? Because you must be THIS tall! Or so it seems. Many people sacrificed their piggy banks to the amateur astronomy gods, but all they got in return was some lousy glass. True story. Telescopes, eye pieces, mounts, filters—these toys can be…ummm…expensive. And that means the admittance price must be literally sky high if you want to enjoy the amusement park [Click Here To Read Article...]
  • Are You In A Piss-Poor Mood?

    01/12/2017 // 10 Comments

    This is how the scientific community defines a ‘piss-poor mood’: an individual infected with a nonsensical, or emotionally volatile attachment to unjustified anger or hate. Hey! Wanna see if you’re in a piss-poor mood? Step right up, and take this simple test. Don’t be shy. No judgments. Your stomach tingles every morning, and not in a good way. Was it the elderly lady in front of you at the local food mart? Her coupons expired, right?  You could have stomped on a baby [Click Here To Read Article...]
  • Brrr! It’s a winter wonderland out there. A mysterious substance thrives in cold temperatures—frost. Oh, you heard of it, right? The stuff you have to scrape off your car windshield every damn morning (if you happen to be an unlucky individual). Frost is often ignored, and for good reason.     Why would any sane person want to take a closer look at something which usually causes a minor inconvenience? Snow gets all the attention. You can ski on snow, even sled! When is the [Click Here To Read Article...]

      Have you ever picked up a fancy holiday relic, and then discovered that your hands are covered in sparkly shit? You know…those itsy-bitsy shiny particles. Yeah. Those things. You can blow, rub, wipe, smear—it doesn’t matter! Glitter has a great reputation of pissing people off. Think about it.

  • Two Celestial Ornaments

    12/16/2016 // 4 Comments

      Two celestial ornaments eternally dangle inside this photograph. A waxing crescent Moon shares the evening sky with Venus—a hellish world about 162 million miles (261 million km) from Earth. The colors of sunset bleeds toward the horizon as a cold blue sky sweeps away the remnants of a dying day. The crescent Moon glows from its tilted orbit above the ecliptic, but the magnitude of Venus can never be ignored. Paula Graham observed this jealous inducing scene from her patio, and [Click Here To Read Article...]

But that’s not all. Space is the gift that keeps on giving—the Geminid meteor shower will also peak on December 13-14.

    Strap yourself into the nearest imaginary rocket and let’s get the hell off this rock! The Japanese flung a very sophisticated piece of machinery toward the Moon—an orbiter. Hey! Don’t forget your cosmic passport! You’re going to need it when you levitate over the Mountains of Madness. The SELENE Lunar Orbiter launched on October 14, 2007. The mission ended when the main orbiter was commanded to plummet toward the south of crater Gill, because all dignified orbiters go out [Click Here To Read Article...]

      Are you in the mood to see something spooky? Halloween is over, but that doesn’t we can’t resurrect the evil holiday spirit. Keyfra Photography kept her eye on the sky and photographed a cratered world—the Moon. Earthly haze smothered the damaged celestial orb and silhouetted trees veiled the night sky. Keyfra discovered a cosmic window through the trees and immortalized the brief moment. Hesitation would have granted the Moon enough time to become eclipsed by trees, but [Click Here To Read Article...]
