Venus, Mars, the Moon and Beta Virginis grouped in the morning sky. November weather is chancy, but this particular morning the skies cooperated. I was struck by the dimension of time as well as distance that separated the objects. Even the earthshine is slightly older light than the crescent itself.
An asteroid or comet headed for Earth is the only large-scale natural disaster we can prevent. Working together to fund our Shoemaker NEO Grants for astronomers, we can help save the world.
