This is a site about all things cosmos, Astronomy, Space, Science, Theoretical Science, History, Life. In between you will see a lot of appreciation towards popularizers of science and the cosmos like the late Carl Sagan. I will post music to go along with the vibe of this site, as well as images relating to space and science, Videos, artist impressions. etc. Browse through, there might just be something that will strike a chord.

An Airplane in Front of the Moon
If you look closely at the Moon, you will see a large airplane in front of it. Well, not always. OK, hardly ever. But if you wait for days with your camera attached to a Moon tracker in a place where airplanes are known to pass, you might catch a good photograph of it. Well, if you’re lucky. OK, extremely lucky. The above image was taken two weeks ago over South East Queensland, Australia using an exposure time of 1/250th of a second and, in the words of the photographer, “a nerve of steel”.
