I'm conflicted. The telescope sounds cool, but it's definitely uncool to disturb sacred ground. I don't know enough to know if there's any reasonable alternatives for the location of the telescope.

Mauna Kea is one of a small handful of ideal sites around the globe for telescopes, but I'm not sure if the specific mission of this could even be achieved at another one or not. There are already several major telescopes there already, so it isn't like this is some area that has been undisturbed and untouched for generations until now. And when they say it's "sacred ground", it's not like this is a burial ground or something that they're digging up.

Yeah, I get that. If there's no other place it could go to achieve its ends, then I wouldn't have a problem with putting it there. I was just musing that if there are any workable alternatives, those would be preferable. As far as "disturbing sacred grounds" goes, a big telescope seems fairly benign.

As long as they don't pick any idols up and then go surfing with it around their neck, I think they'll be fine.

This story says it was the size of a large boulder. Read other stories saying it was over 400 feet in diameter.

Scientists revealed an asteroid dubbed by some as a "city killer" came closer to the Earth than the moon this week. The Washington Post reported scientists say they had no idea it was coming.

Asteroid 2019 OK came hurtling toward Earth at a speed of nearly 15 miles a second, before flying past. According to NASA, it was about 45,000 miles from Earth on Thursday.

"It would have hit with over 30 times the energy of the atomic blast at Hiroshima," astronomer professor Alan Duffy told the Sydney Morning Herald. Duffy called the zooming space rock a "city killer".

"City killer" asteroid just missed Earth – and scientists had no idea

Huge moon coming rising above storm clouds around 8:30 pm Friday night. If I hadn’t been in a hurry to get to the Kroger deli before it closed, I would’ve pulled over and soaked in some lunar rays.

Thanks for the invite and it sounds fun but I have plans.











The plans involve crawling into bed in 55 minutes or less.

Probably just as well. It’s flipping cold outside and I’m concerned if anyone stops dancing for too long, they might be going to sleep, too, (forever). tOfficial Astronomy Thread  - Page 4 3836498553
