I managed to see the Hubble Space Telescope just over an hour ago!! :).
Amazing!! I had two people with me this time and they can pretty much confirm that I was not hallucinating!!
I saw the HST man, the greatest Telescope ever built :). w00t.. 🙂
PS – I also managed to spot another satellite that was moving from north to south a few mins after Hubble disappeared but strangely it is not listed at heavens-above!! Anyway it takes the tally of satellites spotted by me to 3, in 3 days. Now that is awesome gethuness!! 🙂
It is that time of the year again, with the infinite number of top 10 lists that are posted all over the Internet and here are some Top Picture lists which are absolutely awesome..
Phil Plait’s Top 10 Astronomy Pictures of 2008 ( The Bad Astronomer Rocks man, admit it! )
Phil Hart’s 10 Astounding Astrophotos (What’s up with the name Phil and Astronomy!?)
Top 10 Amazing Animal Videos (Amazing! Check out the last Kruger Park Video, it’ll blow your mind!)
And The Big Picture from Boston.com, let me tell you if you even remotely like pictures you’ll be so glad you found this site. Totally Brilliant. If you don’t subscribe to their feed yet, The Year 2008 in Photographs Parts 1 , 2 and 3 will definitely make you do it.
And finally the HST, the ultimate in all of science and space engineering as far as I’m concerned; the ultimate symbol of us, humans. Just check this page from the Big Picture and you will know what I am talking about.
