April 11-20 is the final opportunity to participate in GLOBE at Night this year. Go outside an hour after sunset (8-10pm local time), look up, use one of their magnitude charts to measure how dark your local sky is and report back to them.

That should be "know" not "no".  Been a long day.

Just joined Atheist Nexus and found this group.  Amazing, it's astronomy that really helped me to become a critical thinker and no that religion is just a myth.

I have a roll off roof observatory in the mountains of San Diego with a 14" Meade LX200 GPS telescope.  Although it doesn't get a lot of use with my current work schedule, I've been doing this hobby for 40 years and can't learn enough.  I do enjoy doing outreach for local schools and groups and am the founder of "Julian StarFest", a three night star party, public outreach and vendor exhibit in Julian, CA.

Hope to enjoy the discussions here.

If that's a current photo, then we have to realize that it's winter in the northern hemisphere. That explains the brown. Notice that the Southeast, where there are more evergreens, is still fairly green.
