So, Cassini is taking it’s final plunge tomorrow. That’s been my favorite probe to keep tabs on. I will miss it. :-(

The day before is way cooler, but not on topic.

ConjuncionViaLacteaHumanoVenusLuna_Jaramillo.jpg


Explanation: A beautiful conjunction of Venus and Moon, human, sand, and Milky Way is depicted in this night skyscape from planet Earth. The scene is a panorama of 6 photos taken in a moment near the end of a journey. In the foreground, footsteps along the wind-rippled dunes are close to the Huacachina oasis in the southwestern desert of Peru. An engaging perspective on the world at night, the stunning final image was also chosen as a winner in The World at Night’s 2017 International Earth and Sky Photo Contest.

Cool pic, was that at the dunes in the San Luis Valley?

Thanks for the video tip.

It was a welcome diversion.  Learned a bunch of stuff I hadn’t caught up on yet.
That stuff from Huygen about Titan, amazing, I knew about some of it, but having it all pulled together and the magic of computer graphics.
Lakes, clouds, rain, landscapes, wow.
