Much Happening in Space this Christmas

An Asteroid and a Full Moon

full moon photoMost of my readers are aware that I love space exploration and astronomy.  This year’s Christmas is going to be rather “spacey”.

First off, on Christmas Eve, an asteroid will pass rather close to Earth.  Fear not, however, scientists are assuring us that the space rock will not cause earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

And Christmas Night, the sky will have a full moon.  The last time there was a full moon on Christmas was in 1977.

2015.11.22 – Lumpy’s Links

Lumpy’s Links for 2015.11.22

Greetings Reader,

Thank you for checking out the first list of weekly links I have shared in a good while.

Here they are:

  • Ludicrous – While I am all for freedom of religion, wearing a spaghetti strainer helmet for you driver’s license photo, in my humble opinion, is ludicrous. Although I confess, she looks happy in the photo.
  • Useful – I find TweetDeck the ONLY way to use Twitter, without it, the 1K+ tweeps I follow would be nothing but noise. This article at at The Verge explains how to use the filters.
  • Music – Alice Cooper plays a suprise gig. (some video is embedded below)
  • PPhoto – Most likely, this bright streak, is from the Taurids meteor shower. Regardless, it is a great photo.
  • Yours (Something tweeted to me or emailed) – This being the first one in a long while, to date, I have received nothing.
  • Science – How about using plasma to grow diamonds?
  • I had to mention this one as a bonus. It is just a really kewl looking Alien

Since it has been a while since I have published one of these and also the week of Thanksgiving here are a few links for the black shopping days. I originally heard of or found all of these and many more useful tips, hacks and tricks Lifehacker.

Thanks for reading, feel free to share, comment or even send me a PayPal Tip. Feel free to send me any and all suggestions you wish or hit @Lumpy on twitter

Make Your Own Heart Check this out. Heartmaker

I just have to Mention this site on Valentine’s Day

Scan of a Valentine greeting card dated 1909.

I originally published this on this same day back in 2006.  I was pleased to see the site was still up and running.

Check this out.  Not only is it kewl for this day, but it would be a cruel way to break up with the message “Get Lost”.. heh

A Drone Flying Through Fireworks

Fireworks

On some previous Fourth of July, I was on a flight going from one military post to another. I really enjoyed many a fireworks display from above the clouds that year. This video may actually be kewler.
