It took me a minute to work out why the Star Party rather than the trip to Spain was the exciting part.

El Asociación Astronómica de Toledo saluda Sant Iago! :D

Have fun anyway.

My recollection is that it is argued that although the moon orbits the Earth, it's trajectory takes it round the Sun without crossing its own path, so the Moon and Earth are both planets, and follow near identical Sun orbits. Were the Earth removed the Moon would be the third planet, presumably rena...

A sidereal day is the time it takes for a given fixed star to appear to return to the same position in the sky (ignoring precession and nutation). On Earth it's about 23 hours 56 minutes. During that time the Earth advances in its orbit so that the Sun appears to have moved with respect to the back...

Out with the Typex, there are only 8 planets; Pluto is demoted for years of underachievement, poor annual reviews etc.

There is actually a joke floating around the internet, something like ten reasons why he was Hispanic. I'll have to dig it up.

There are some around here that are full of shia, but Dragon Star isn't among them.

If you have time to spare, plasmapheresis (sp?) is more useful. They centrifuge your blood, give you back the red stuff and keep the plasma and various lumpy bits. It takes about 3/4 of an hour and you recover faster since all you have to replace is liquid not cells and liquid. It is possible to hav...

I realised after I posted that was either the straightline to a joke, or close to the truth. I must start using better analogies/examples.

Re: Looking Back Now...

I have seen several anti-cult websites which, after 911, showed clearly that 911 is precisely a cult. It uses many of the same conditioning techniques that cults use to make complete unquestioning devotion to their leaders. Without links I'm having to guess here, but I'll go with: they break you do...
