…you must first invent the universe.
Continuing a recent run of posts about space I’d spent much of the evening yesterday running in and out, wishing the clouds would blow away and the skies clear for the global “moonwatch” evening that was taking place as part of the international year of astronomy (Global, UK, France, NASA).
I’d had a whale of a time with a similar meteorwatch event in the summer and through the global reach of twitter, had 3000+ views on some of my meteor photos. Tonight it was the turn of a similar event aimed at our Moon and Jupiter.
I’d taken a number of photos as the night progressed… running in and quickly downloading them, tweak them, upload them online and tweet them, pausing just long enough to fill my wine glass and run back out again.
Astronomy FM, an online radio station, were broadcasting moon music all night long, so that was the soundtrack for the evening when I wasn’t outside. I had three requests filled (Kate Bush, Cloudbusting. Van Morrison, Moondance. Joe Satriani, Big Bad Moon.) which was nice and there was some great music all night. Excellent stuff. This however, stopped me in my tracks.
