's kinda funny how he tweets about his every "first" after getting back.

my first flower
my first steak
my first apple pie
my first rain

must have been insane breathing your own farts for a year and eating energy bars.

He had to eat Mrs. Biden's pie? I'd have stayed the fuck up in space.

This guy says two comets will be passing within 2-3 million miles of Earth in the next few weeks.

Explanation: Why would the sky glow like a giant repeating rainbow? Airglow. Now air glows all of the time, but it is usually hard to see. A disturbance however -- like an approaching storm -- may cause noticeable rippling in the Earth's atmosphere. These gravity waves are oscillations in air analogous to those created when a rock is thrown in calm water. The long-duration exposure nearly along the vertical walls of airglow likely made the undulating structure particularly visible. OK, but where do the colors originate? The deep red glow likely originates from OH molecules about 87-kilometers high, excited by ultraviolet light from the Sun. The orange and green airglow is likely caused by sodium and oxygen atoms slightly higher up. The featured image was captured during a climb up Mount Pico in the Azores of Portugal. Ground lights originate from the island of Faial in the Atlantic Ocean. A spectacular sky is visible through this banded airglow, with the central band of our Milky Way Galaxy running up the image center, and M31, the Andromeda Galaxy, visible near the top left.

Obviously a flaw in the dome's projector. They really should upgrade from a single-chip DLP.

Jupiter was awesome last night and right next to the moon. Didn't take any pics but enjoyed the views. Even in light polluted LA.
