Attack of the Spammers…

I’ve turned off comments for a while since I’ve been taking big hits from spammers ever since WordPress changed some of the settings on this blog.

They updated it a couple of weeks ago and I’m trying to get it back like it was before they “improved” it.

Bear with me just a little bit longer so I can sort it out.  In the mean time I hope you’re enjoying some views of Comet Pan-STARRS.  It’s getting dimmer, so I don’t think we have too much time left to view it.

I’ll return in a day or two with some new pix!



Finally, we were greeted with some rain this afternoon.

Not much, just a little over a 1/4 inch fell, but considering we’ve only had 1.78 inches this year, we’ll take whatever we can get!

The small puddle in the driveway is posted above for evidence!

I hope the folks in Los Alamos got some of this– it sure would help the firefighters!

Stars in the sky

Whatever credibility I  may have had as an astronomer will surely vanish after posting this.

But if you know about the viral youtube video of “Pants on the Ground”

just think of that with these Lyrics….if you can call them lyrics.

Please, don’t throw things at me!



Stars in the sky

Stars in the sky

Lookin with my eyes at the stars in the sky

Light in my mouth

Telescope out, stars in the sky.

Talking in the dark like the Sun don’t shine.

Looking all around stars in the sky.

Looking up!

Hey!  Look at stars in the sky.

Venus and Moon shine so bright

Like stars in the sky

Looking up!

Hey get some stars in your sky.

Looking all around stars in the sky.

Light in your mouth.

Telescope out- there’s stars in the sky.

Talking in the dark like the Sun Don’t shine.

Stars in the sky….stars in the sky….
