I decided to start this thread after reading the comments and seeing the pics about the Northern Lights in another thread.

********************************

On Cogizio a few days, or maybe a week ago, Locutus wrote an article about the website: Astronomy Picture of the Day. I’ve been visiting the site for about a year now and was glad to see it get the well deserved publicity.

I tell ya folks, it’s got some of the most boring pics you could ever want to see. However, from time to time it’s got a picture or video that is just amazing!

Today’s pic (5/22/10) is one of the amazing ones.

 

You can check out past pics in their archive by clicking the “Discover the Cosmos” link above the picture or the “Archive” link at the bottom of the page.

On the website, right under the pic they give an explanation of what the pic is.

The website is at: http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/astropix.html

Sorry. But check my username. You’ll see it isn’t “Mind Reader.” Yell

I thought I’d give your site a little more promotion by mentioning that you’d written about the picture of the day site already, but I guess that must have been the wrong thing to do. Confused

And how would I know you’ve got something planned for saturday night. Sheesh, it feels like I’m explaining myself to an ex-wife! Yell

Not cool…

It’s ok little borg… (pats locutus on the head). I know, the big bad shodan probably freaked you out. Wink

 

Aren’t the Shodan a race of people in one of the star trek series?

Wikipedia said:

SHODAN (Sentient Hyper-Optimized Data
Access Network) is a fictional
artificial intelligence and the main
antagonist
of the cyberpunk first-person shooter/role-playing
games
System Shock and Terri
Brosius
.

She is characterized by her megalomania
and chaotic, discordant speech. Her words are accompanied by stuttering,
fluctuating voice timbre,
and the presence of three voices speaking the same words with the
constituent voices alternately lagging behind and leading ahead, as well
as computer glitches resembling a sound
card
malfunction.

Nope. Smile

Hmmm. Oh well.

Either way, I’ve gotta be on a plane 9 hours from now. Time to head to bed.

Next time I log in it’ll probably be Sunday night, from Washington DC. (gonna set the prez straight!) (-just kidding!!!-)

Have a good weekend!
