    Let us know if you find Apollo 18, OK?

    Apollo 18....*groan* that movie was so lame!

    Oops, I have to run--I'm brewing some Cavorite and need to do some painting with it before it cools.

    Apollo 18 was Deke Slayton's ride. They didn't leave LEO.

    How much difference is there in lunar apogee and perigee anyway?

    Either it does not applies to this part of the world, or I'm looking at wrong time, but I see no noticeable difference in my 100mm refractor.

    I think it will be close tonight at around 8 pm Central USA time tonight May 5.

    Look for the American flag.

    Do you have a camera on your 100mm ?

    It said in the paper that an American scientist said we will be living on the moon in 70 years. As this dead rock has no water, has no air, how will people live on it? What about toilet facilities as one example. I think its very unlikely but..... we'll let you Americans go first !

    Living on the moon? Why not!

    Most of the Moon seems to be perfectly habitable. It is the same for Mars.

    Only the surface of the moon is hostile. Move underground. A pressurized shirtsleeve environment seems to be a possibility. Just don't go outside without wrapping up!

    On the contrary. Water has been repeatedly found on the Moon for the last several decades! We have photos of it blowing out from the surface. The latest location is in the gigantic South Polar crater. It's there for the taking if we figure out how to process it.

    NASA has been making water, and recycling urine into drinking water for a long time.

    The Moon could be a nice place to live.

    The Super Moon should be visible tonight Very Soon.

    Enjoy the Moon Bounce.

    When I take photos of the moon, I like to climb up on a hill. That way I get a closer shot.

    Remember, when the moon is in range, so are you.

    I was up on the roof howling at the Moon last night.
    We have new neighbors and they called the Cops....
    The Cops assured them everything was okay...
    And went on to say "She is just letting her inner dog (You know what word belongs there....) out"...


    NOT :)
