A particularly interesting picture of the recent Venus passage


I saw this image when I was a kid. The photograph of Jupiter taken by NASAs Voyager. Beautiful. But nothing special until shown in rapid succession. Suddenly Jupiter was alive. Breathing. I was hypnotized.

Rare treat coming: Three eclipses in June and July

Over the next month, the world will experience three eclipses: two partial solar eclipses a month apart and one total lunar eclipse exactly in between, and it all starts with a so-called “midnight” eclipse of the sun.

This better not be as shitty as the so-called “super moon” because that didn’t look any different for me.
