That's great grammer but can the photos be slowed down any or even work off a click of the mouse? They go a little too fast for me and I think a lot is being lost to the viewer.

Good one Grammer :cool:

Unfortunately Jordo the Imageshack slideshows are crap. No controls, and the fade in cuts the photo up somewhat.
Everybody has WMM (windows movie maker) on their pc's, very easy to use and great for making slideshows
and a simple upload to youtube.
Anybody wants to try it and/or needs help with it givvus a shout! :cool:

I got an Email today about the red planet Mars. Due to rotation of the planets, gravitational pull etc. etc. Mars will be a mere 35 million miles away from Earth come August. This will be the nearest the two Planets have been in 5,000 years and it is estimated that this may not happen again for another 60,000 years apparently because of Jupiters’ pull on Mars but there is a chance that it might happen again in 2287. One way or the other there will be a lot of bridges under the water the next time it comes around.
5,000 years, it is hard to imagine that time span, well it is for me. Look at all that has happened in the last 2,000.
34, million miles does not seem THAT near either but for the whole month Mars will be the second brightest object in the night sky and will be the same size as the FULL MOON.
At the beginning of August Mars will rise in the East at 10 P.M. and reach its azimuth at 3 A M with a magnitude of -2.9 and will be 25.11 arc seconds wide WOW... :D At the end of the month as it reaches its nearest point to Earth it will rise at nightfall and will be at its brightest at 12:30.

Facinating Jordo, I'll try to remember about it ;-) If not I'm sure you'll remind us :cool:

Well Guys, two beautiful clear nights but no sign of Mars or anything even half resembling it.
There is a fantastic full moon though if any of you with a good camera are still up.

September 9, 2009: NASA's Hubble Space Telescope is back in business, ready to uncover new worlds, peer ever deeper into space, and even map the invisible backbone of the universe. The first snapshots from the refurbished Hubble



Now that Hubble has reopened for business, it will tackle a whole range of observations. Looking closer to Earth, such observations will include taking a census of the population of Kuiper Belt objects residing at the fringe of our solar system, witnessing the birth of planets around other stars, and probing the composition and structure of the atmospheres of other worlds. Peering much farther away, astronomers have ambitious plans to use Hubble to make the deepest-ever portrait of the universe in near-infrared light. The resulting picture may reveal never-before-seen infant galaxies that existed when the universe was less than 500 million years old. Hubble also is now significantly more well-equipped to probe and further characterize the behavior of dark energy, a mysterious and little-understood repulsive force that is pushing the universe apart at an ever-faster rate.
