I believe that the ecliptic and the plane of the galaxy are not the same.

Has anyone else thought about the orientation of the Milky Way in the sky and how it relates to the orbital plane of the Earth? I wonder if it is common to have an orbital plane that does not match the Milky Way orbital plane?

I saw it as it was rising last night. Didn't get out after dark to look at it. It was only 6 hours off of the equinox, IIRC.

Anyone see the Harvest Moon?

Two asteroids to pass near earth today

Wired.com: Asteroid Double Whammy Near Earth Wednesday

Get out your telescopes! Two small asteroids will come within moon distance of Earth Wednesday.

The first, asteroid 2010 RX30, will come within 154,100 miles of Earth — about 60 percent of the Earth-moon distance — at 5:51 a.m. EDT (1251 UT). This asteroid is estimated to be about 42 feet across.

The second, 2010 RF12, will come almost 12 hours later, at 5:12 p.m. EDT (0012 UT Thursday). It will swing by Earth at just 20 percent the Earth-moon distance, or 47,845 miles. 2010 RF12 is even smaller, only about 23 feet across.
