Very up close and curious: flyby Jan 13 2010

Space Weather News for Jan 12, 2010

CURIOUS ASTEROID FLYBY: A curious object is about to fly past Earth only one-third the distance to the Moon. Catalogued as a 10m-class asteroid, 2010 AL30 has an orbital period of almost exactly 1 year. This raises the possibility that it might not be a natural object, but rather a piece of some spacecraft from our own planet.

At closest approach on Jan 13, 2010 AL30 will streak through Orion, Taurus, and Pisces glowing like a 14th magnitude star. Experienced amateur astronomers are encouraged to monitor the flyby.

Orbital elements, images, and more information are available on SpaceWeather.com.

Now after yesterday’s news of Sarah Palin’s signing with FOX News I must say it: it is a bird, a plane, or a Palin? And will her TV commentary career last as long as a curious flyby?

Venus and Jupiter hook up and you can watch!

Space Weather News for Jan 31, 2008:
MORNING SKY ALERT: Set your alarm for dawn. On Friday morning, February 1st, Venus and Jupiter converge in the southeastern sky less than 1 degree apart; they will beam through the rosy glow of dawn like a pair of celestial headlights. It’s a spectacular view worth waking up early to see. The February 1st alignment kicks off four mornings of beautiful views as the crescent Moon moves in to join Venus and Jupiter over the weekend. Visit http://spaceweather.com for sky maps and photos.#
<–>Sounds spectacular! but with Jupiter representing Republicans, both planets relating to money and values, and their conjunction occurring NOW when the US Senate is tussling over much-needed additions to the economic stimulus package, I wonder if this hook up of Venus and Jupiter says something about a fortunate outcome.
Neo-conned America could use a fortunate outcome about now–and you’d think that pretty-minded elitist politicians would have enough pesos socked away under their over-stuffed mattresses by now. How about letting the rest of us have a chance at a good night’s sleep?

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
