Moon Over Miami and Saturn

Superbowl Weekend

Go Steelers, or Cardinals!

Enjoy the commercials.
You can see some here;

Purple Frog

Yep, that's it's face. Nose, beady eyes and all.

The name of the frog is the Purple Frog although it is also called the Pig Nosed frog. Unless you want to call it Nasikabatrachus sahyadrensis. It lives under the forest floor, eating termites except for monsoon season, when it comes to the surface to mate. It was thought to be extinct because it is so rarely seen.

Plenty of Oil! On Titan

Oil That Is

Lakes of Oil

It rains Liquid hydrocarbons on Saturns moon, Titan

Saturn's orange moon Titan has hundreds of times more liquid hydrocarbons than all the known oil and natural gas reserves on Earth, according to new data from NASA's Cassini spacecraft. The hydrocarbons rain from the sky, collecting in vast deposits that form lakes and dunes.

The dark places are lakes of oil.

I just love this stuff.

Here On Earth

Last Monday our moon blocked the sun over Manila Bay.

Here in Redding

January says goodbye with this beautiful sunset.

I have been experimenting with recording on the new Mac book. I should have most of the kinks worked out in a day or two. What I have tried so far with Audacity, has been really good. Getting all the things set like I have them in the iMac is a little tricky, but it's worth it.
