Sky Watch


Dear Furiends,

In case you weren’t aware of what all the tiny bits are that we see in the sky. I’m sharing a ‘map’ of the satellites, which encircle our planet that I discovered on Pinterest.

SpaceX Falcon 9 Heavy Launch

DSC_0747Dear Furiends,

Today’s SpaceX Flacon 9 Heavy Launch was a success – at least that’s what they claim. Please notice that this has THREE rockets, all of which are supposed to be recyclable. However, as per SpaceX twitter, at this point, only the two side rockets have been confirmed as landing … not the core one.

The video below provides about a half hour of information about the rocket and it’s maiden launch and this SpaceX Flacon 9 Heavy  link gives you all sorts of details…. and the views were a lot better than mine, as you can see in the jpg above.

SpaceX Falcon 9

mteleDear Furiends,

I apologize for not writing this immediately after the SpaceX Falcon 9 launch (January 31, 2018 4:25 p.m. EST)… I watched it rise into the clouds from my very own yard. I was purrfect! And then, I got locked inside the catio, where I didn’t have internet access.

Any meow, if you’d like to know more about the Falcon 9, everything you want to know is right here. DSC_0539

And This is what it looked like from my yard:

Lunar Eclipse

mteleDear Furiends,

Tomorrow ( January 31st ) there will be a Lunar Eclipse, which will be visible in central and western North America, Australia, and much of Asia.  This eclipses will be purrticularly special because it will also be a “blue moon,” (the second full moon of the month), and a “supermoon,” (with the moon closer to the earth than normal, so it will look slightly larger). … In fact, I predict that it will be pawesome!0214-9739-690x457

Mr. Michael Frye took this amazing time-eclipse photo in August of 2007 and if you’re interested in finding out how to do something like this, he tells how here.
