Thanks to our buddy Ralph Winrich for pointing out the APOD (Astronomy Picture of the Day) entry about the transit of Mercury – May 9, 2016. Those of us without proper telescope filters say ‘thank you’ to those who do!
Join Dr. Bruce B as he unravels more mysteries of the cosmos . . . with a dash of humor!
I stood in front of the class and made eye contact with the English teacher. I had a fully strung compound hunting bow in my left hand. The bow was fully equipped with string silencers and a mounted quiver with four broadhead arrows, each sporting razor blade inserts at the ready . I had my […]
