Like the thread in Orkut, this is a thread to share the latest in the world of Astronomy and Physics.
What better than Pluto to start this – the underworld, the Scorpio ruler, the planet?
These are some of Pluto’s pictures taken from about 3.3 million miles away by NASA’s New Horizon Spacecraft in June. We should be seeing even better pictures Tuesday morning on July 14, when it gets closest to Pluto. Scientist hope to get more information about Pluto’s atmosphere and its surface.
“Live streaming” of the event information is here:July 14, 2015 at 7:13 am #1059
How wonderful, Expecto!! Thank you so much for this! This will punctuate the old files nicely as the old files are uploaded over the coming weeks. What a delightful surprise! :good:July 14, 2015 at 2:53 pm #1060
My pleasure. Can’t find the “like” button again.
Here are the latest pictures. O’ it’s wonderful!July 17, 2015 at 1:31 am #1076ChristineMember
Working on the Like button issue, there are quite a few updates that need to be done that I believe will resolve this issue. Please bare with me while I make a few changes to the site. I see there is a favorite button in the mean time. Let me know if you notice any other glitches.
Thank you! And I hope to get this fixed as soon as possible.July 25, 2015 at 7:31 pm #1140
Thanks, Keymaster Delacruztine. 🙂
Can we also have a hyperlink the number under “posts” to take us to the last post? Please. 🙂September 21, 2015 at 2:37 am #1854
Next Sunday, Sept 27th, is a supermoon lunar eclipse. Just that this (super)moon will appear a little bigger, the (eclipsed) blood-moon will look even more impressive. Go out and watch it – it’s a wonderful experience!September 21, 2015 at 3:52 am #1872
What a fabulous idea, Expecto! Thank you!September 21, 2015 at 3:54 am #1873
I think, Expecto every video shows, but then as I recall all NASA videos are also on YouTube which may be why. 😉September 22, 2015 at 1:27 am #1876
I seem to recall that all members of the communities whould be able to see these threads somehow, but I think the way that happens is for them to click the little box at the bottom left of the community which automatically subscribes them to the thread.September 23, 2015 at 11:21 pm #1892
This is a nice depiction of the real sizes in our solar system. The last minute or so is …staggering, as he says.September 24, 2015 at 12:01 am #1893
Thank you so much, Expecto!!! I tried so hard to post this and the other video they have, to no avail. They never replied to my request for help either. sighhhSeptember 25, 2015 at 12:59 am #1894
Btw, Expecto, did you notice they left out Pluto? In a Pluto-ruled (yes, and Mars too) Scorpio community, I should think you, among many, would be horrified at such a thought! Even I was taken aback. :scratch:
😥September 25, 2015 at 10:55 am #1895
I noticed. Guess it’s not considered a planet afterall. :scratch: 🙂September 25, 2015 at 10:55 am #1896
And will take a 14 mile radius perhaps.October 4, 2015 at 10:04 pm #1989
Keeping with the theme of dear old Pluto, one of the great rulers of Scorpio if you’re a modern astrologer–and if you’re a traditional astrologer, I don’t suppose you’ll care much anyway since you’ll be more inclined to keep a focus on Mars, but surely even you don’t just ignore our Scorpio buddy, dear ol’ Pluto! So in his honor–whether “he” is the Disney dog or that planet/dwarf, speck of space people don’t get with the snakeskin (regal as that is, and they can’t make him a king because he’s too small? Forgive me but much of my fmaily is too!)–you might enjoy this video…
