In between cloud banks rolling through I managed about an hour ago to catch M13.........

The view was the best in two years I've had the dob, actually able to resolve festoons/loops of stars, maybe 200 or more.......

Ah yes, like a scoop of ice cream, with the edges dripping down over the cone..... Hopefully you swung north a bit for M92? Equally tasty!

Looks kind of familiar but not sure...do you have a picture of the whole plant?

On the Leafy Trails of Mattheissen SP

Posted By Christine Canelos Welsh

This is Lake Falls, where the water tumbles over the lip of Mattheissen Lake. At the top is a former one-lane "highway" bridge.

Or Hydrophyllum appendiculatum for those that can pronounce that. wink

Not only can I pronounce it, I can use it in a limerick....

Along wooded pathways we got ’em,
Look closely and you’re sure to spot ‘em.
In lilac or white,
They’re such a delight:
Hydrophyllum appendiculatum

The Hunt for Fred

Posted By Christine Canelos Welsh

I was also very disgusted by this story. Especially after previously hearing the story about the record "wild" boar.

Coming from a hunting family myself, I am also thoroughly repulsed by the concept of an enclosed hunting preserve. Shooting an animal that has little chance to escape is not much to be proud of, and certainly has nothing to do with why hunting has an effective and credible place in game management.

And why the heck was a kid given a pistol to hunt with, when he was expected to be up against a "wild boar"?

ISS and Shuttle.

Posted By Christine Canelos Welsh

We were able to see it on the 19th & 20th, both very favorable viewings. I always find it very inspiring seeing manned spacecraft flying over. I managed to catch a picture (though not the greatest) on both nights. Here's the first, from the 19th.
