Did you know that next Tuesday, April 22 is Earth Day? How about celebrating by getting your tickets to the Summer Nights with the Stars 2014 season? It only happens at the most intimate outdoor concert venue in the most beautiful park in the Layton-est city in a county known as Davis in the northern part of a pretty, great state that serves as the Crossroads of the West in the greatest country on arguably the best planet in the Milky Way Galaxy. So, yeah, we are busy getting the Kenley Amphitheater ready for the biggest season the Davis Arts Council has ever presented. From the opening song of the kick-off celebration with Ryan Shupe and the Rubberband (June 14) right up until the last trumpeted notes of Blood, Sweat, & Tears (September 13), you can bet there is something for the whole family this summer, including Bill Cosby, Indigo Girls, Thompson Square, Eclipse, Herman's Hermits Starring Peter Noone, and so much more.
"O King, when such a mystic passes over the Milky Way by the illuminating Suṣumṇā to reach the highest planet, Brahmaloka, he goes first to Vaiśvānara, the planet of the deity of fire, wherein he becomes completely cleansed of all contaminations, and thereafter he still goes higher, to the circle of Śiśumāra, to relate with Lord Hari, the Personality of Godhead."

“Behind every man now alive stand thirty ghosts, for that is the ratio by which the dead outnumber the living. Since the dawn of time, roughly a hundred billion human beings have walked the planet Earth. Now this is an interesting number, for by a curious coincidence there are approximately a hundred billion stars in our local universe, the Milky Way. So for every man who has ever lived, in this Universe there shines a star.” Arthur C. Clarke
There are many creation myths which explain the origin of the Milky Way In Greek myth the Milky Way was caused by milk spilt by Hera
Photography enthusiasts, I am thinking of going to Arches National Park to photograph the Milky Way around 22-27 June. What are the "must-photograph" arches and formations within the Park? And what is their accessibility? I know the Park is open 24/7, but still, I would be going in and out in the dark. Are there a lot of people photographing these arches at night? What advice do you have? I've never been there! Thanks!
I played hooky and learned about the Galactic Federation of the Milky Way. What did you learn staying in school today?
So we can go to Mars, drive around like we own it and and take thousands of high res picture of Milky Way, but can not find any debris of missing aircraft in Indian Ocean. Interesting!!

The answers were right in front of you the entire time Brian. Su Mole. Paine Webber Company Paine Webber and Company was an American stock brokerage and asset management firm that was acquired by the Swiss bank UBS AG in 2000. The company was founded in 1880 in Boston, Massachusetts, by William Alfred Paine and Wallace G. Webber. Founder: William A. Paine Founded: 1881 - A nebula is an interstellar cloud of dust, hydrogen, helium and other ionized gases. Originally, nebula was a name for any diffuse astronomical object, including galaxies beyond the Milky Way. The Andromeda Galaxy, for instance, was referred to as the Andromeda Nebula (and spiral galaxies in general as "spiral nebulae") before the true nature of galaxies was confirmed in the early 20th century by Vesto Slipher, Edwin Hubble and others. Nebulae are often star-forming regions, such as in the Eagle Nebula. This nebula is depicted in one of NASA's most famous images, the "Pillars of Creation". In these regions the formations of gas, dust, an ...
The first night sky that left me speechless was a summer night On Cedar Key in Florida. Saw the Milky Way for the first time.

My granddaughter Gabby is staying with John and me over the weekend. She just made me a cup of coffee that was filled to the brim.did a brilliant job of not spilling it when she served it to me at my desk. We have been outside star gazing tonight. The night skies are absolutely brilliant. I pointed out the Southern Cross, Orion's Belt and the Milky Way as well as a few planes that flew overhead. Gabs is scared of the dark and even with her holding the torch for me while I set up my camera she clung to me and wouldn't let go. I have been trying for a long time now to help her overcome her fears of the dark. I was exactly like she is when I was a little girl. It took me years to realise that the night is my friend. I only hope she will come to the same realisation herself one day. I'm going to finish my coffee and go back outside again.I don't think Gabs wants to be my torch bearer anymore though so I guess it's just going to be me and the stars on our own. Lol!
Since the time change to Spring Forward time, my early morning drives into work are usually even before the twilight of the new day. I back my car out of my garage in the darkness of a reigning night, with only the illumination of the car radios’ blue glow glaring in my eyes. There is a local Cuban radio station that plays TV and movie theme songs, set to elevator music…it is my morning mental game to guess what song or show this music originated from. They seem to like ABBA songs, maybe Castro likes ABBA? As I roll out of my neighborhood of the well manicured lawns and identical houses of the base housing, I start up a hill that tops out with a commanding view, not just of the bay or the ocean, but of the heavens as well. Some mornings, in the dark sky, I can actually see the Milky Way band of stars as they hover overhead in their North to South formation. This morning, there was a waning moon, what we as children called a “Fingernail” moon accompanied by a bright morning star, directly adjacent ...

The small "Inedibles Only" sign on the Mars - Milky Way tanker truck struck me as ironic if not funny. I took this photo while riding shotgun along I-70 last week in eastern Ohio. I'm hoping that he was hauling stuff away from the candy bar factory rather than hauling ingredients to the factory :-)

Anyone else dreaming of what it would be like to pinch a billion dollars from Warren Buffett? I admit that I filled out a bracket and my hopes are appropriately high. I like my one in nine quintillion odds. Just to put it in perspective, a quintillion might be used to measure the miles across the Milky Way or the odds of dying from a falling coconut carried by your typical African swallow. On the other hand, I think the odds that more than 14 million people (including me) will have busted brackets before this weekend are extremely high. Odds of getting loads of junk email from Yahoo and Quicken Loans: 100%
New findings show that the universe underwent a burst of inflation that was seemingly faster than the speed of light in the first instant of its existence, throwing off a storm of exotic gravitational waves in the process, NBC News reports. The results support a concept known as inflationary Big Bang theory. The evidence comes from the BICEP2 experiment at the South Pole, which captures and analyzes the faint glow left over from the Big Bang. One of the pioneers of inflationary Big Bang theory, Stanford physicist Andrei Linde, said Monday's revelation was "something I have been hoping to see for 30 years."

The Andromeda Galaxy will collide with our Milky Way Galaxy in about 4 billion years.
This festively colorful nebula, called NGC 604, is one of the largest known seething cauldrons of star birth in a nearby galaxy. As seen in a mosaic image taken with NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, NGC 604 is similar to familiar star-birth regions in our Milky Way Galaxy, such as the Orion Nebula, but it is vastly larger in extent and contains many more recently formed stars. This monstrous star-birth region contains more than 200 brilliant blue stars within a cloud of glowing gases some 1,300 light-years across, nearly 100 times the size of the Orion Nebula. The bright stars in NGC 604 are extremely young by astronomical standards, having formed a mere 3 million years ago. Most of the brightest and hottest stars form a loose cluster located within a cavity near the center of the nebula. Stellar winds from these hot blue stars, along with supernova explosions, are responsible for carving out the hole at the center. The most massive stars in NGC 604 exceed 120 times the mass of our Sun, and their surface te ...

Remove from oven. 3.Immediately sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over the top of the cookie crust. Using a spoon or cookie scoop coated with nonstick cooking spray, drop rounded teaspoonfuls of peanut butter on top of the chocolate chips. Let stand until the chocolate chips have softened, about 5 minutes. 4.Using an offset spatula or a butter knife, gently spread chocolate and peanut butter over the crust. Sprinkle candy pieces in a single layer on top. 5.Chill at least 10 minutes to set topping. Cut into wedges and serve.
Time for a little poetry, especially for those who dance with the daffodils. I wandered lonely as a cloud That floats on high o'er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of golden daffodils; Beside the lake, beneath the trees, Fluttering and dancing in the breeze. Continuous as the stars that shine And twinkle on the milky way, They stretched in never-ending line Along the margin of a bay: Ten thousand saw I at a glance, Tossing their heads in sprightly dance. The waves beside them danced; but they Out-did the sparkling waves in glee: A poet could not but be *** In such a jocund company: I gazed-and gazed-but little thought What wealth the show to me had brought: For oft, when on my couch I lie In vacant or in pensive mood, They flash upon that inward eye Which is the bliss of solitude; And then my heart with pleasure fills, And dances with the daffodils. William Wordsworth (1770 - 1850) English Romantic poet

Star Formation Stars are born within the clouds of dust and scattered throughout most galaxies. A familiar example of such as a dust cloud is the Orion Nebula, revealed in vivid detail in the adjacent image, which combines images at visible and infrared wavelengths measured by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and Spitzer Space Telescope. Turbulence deep within these clouds gives rise to knots with sufficient mass that the gas and dust can begin to collapse under its own gravitational attraction. As the cloud collapses, the material at the center begins to heat up. Known as a protostar, it is this hot core at the heart of the collapsing cloud that will one day become a star. Three-dimensional computer models of star formation predict that the spinning clouds of collapsing gas and dust may break up into two or three blobs; this would explain why the majority the stars in the Milky Way are paired or in groups of multiple stars. As the cloud collapses, a dense, hot core forms and begins gathering dust and gas. N ...

Regarding the claim that all directly measurable stars are within 3,000 light years distance- Those stars represent about three percent of the galaxy's stars. If the universe is only 6,000 LY across, ignoring everything outside the Milky Way for the moment, this puts about 390 billion stars within the range of 3-6 thousand LY. That comes out to a density of 3-4 stars per cubic light year. Thus, the outer sphere would be about 200 times denser that the inner sphere, a very noticeable difference with extreme consequences for those stellar interactions. Now to my knowledge, no one has ever observed that the galaxy is constructed like that. Our best estimates of the number of galaxies in the universe is around 500 billion. But even if we take an extremely conservative estimate like 100 billion, imagining the Milky Way to be an average galaxy, that puts the outer sphere at a density of over three hundred billion stars per cubic light year. You now have a galaxy with a mass slightly less than the milky way stuf ...

This will be the start of our public nights which are on the 1st Saturday of every month from March through November. Weather permitting, especially this time of year. What a wonderful opportunity to observe God's wonders through telescopes as small as 10" to those as large as our showpiece 36" Equatorial. First up will be M31 - The Great Andromeda Galaxy. We have to be fast because it's rapidly setting in the west. This galaxy is the Milky Way's nearest neighbor at 2,500,000 light years distance. Now think about this. The light that we'll see (hopefully) through the telescope will have left that galaxy at the time on earth when the genus *** (our ancient ancestors) first made an appearance!

MT The Large/Small Magellanic Clouds & Milky Way as seen in Chile's Atacama Desert by Beletsky
In ancient Greek and Roman mythology, the lily represented the goddess Hera, from whom it was believed the flowers came. The myth is that Zeus brought his mortal son Hercules to his wife Hera to nurse from her as she slept. Zeus wanted his son to have divine powers from drinking Hera’s milk, but because the child was from another woman, Hera flung Hercules away from her when she woke up. Her milk flew out through the universe to create the Milky Way, and a few drops fell to Earth, where beautiful white lilies sprung from the ground. In Roman mythology, Venus, the goddess of love and lust, saw the flowers, and in a fit of jealousy over their beauty, she made them grow a large pistil in their center

Modern Science Reveals New Modern Science Reveals New Miracles of the Qur'an: THE SKIES WITH 'WOVEN' ORBITS "By heaven furnished with paths;" (Surat adh-Dhariyat, 7) The Arabic word "alhubuki," translated as "furnished with paths" in verse 7 of Surat adh-Dhariyat, comes from the verb "hubeke," meaning "to weave closely, to knit, to bind together." The use of this word in the verse is particularly wise and represents the current state of scientific knowledge in two aspects. The first is this: The orbits and paths in the universe are so dense and intertwined that they constitute intersecting paths, just like the threads in a piece of fabric. The Solar System we live in is made up of the Sun, the planets and their satellites and heavenly objects in constant motion such as meteors and comets. The Solar System moves through the galaxy known as the Milky Way, which contains 400 billion stars.1 It is estimated that there are billions of galaxies. Celestial bodies and systems revolving at speeds of t ...

An astronomer once quipped that if Neil Armstrong had taken a cell phone to the Moon in 1969, it would have appeared to be the third most powerful source of microwave radiation in the universe, next only to the Sun and the Milky Way. He was right. Life evolved with negligible levels of microwave radiation. ** An increasing number of scientists speculate that our body's own cells, in fact, use the microwave spectrum to communicate with one another, like children whispering in the dark, and that cell phones, like jackhammers, interfere with their signaling. ** In any case, it is a fact that we are all being bombarded, day in and day out, whether we use a cell phone or not, by an amount of microwave radiation that is some ten million times as strong as the average natural background. And it is also a fact that most of this radiation is due to technology that has been developed since the 1970s.

Someday, I want to see a clean starry sky (Milky Way) at night... that is my dream. Luckily it's pretty visible in the countryside!
Landscape photographer Terje Sorgjerd traveled to Mount Teide in Spain and captured this timelapse of the Milky Way Galaxy. This video was recorded in the Canary Islands in April 2011 and was Sorgjerd's second timelapse video.

Snow has been perfect in the Milky Way and , skiing on cotton wool balls & empty pistes! 😁👌
But Autumn good she got new hairbows clothes boots nd toys. So this Milky Way gon have to do til i get paid again.
Star-filled night skies can be found on England’s south coast; even the Milky Way is visible. Pure magic!
Feel like James Franco when he was eating that Milky Way in This Is the End
Last minute as usual...Enjoying winter in a warming world. I'll be skiing on my lake in Oxford late this afternoon and tonight, followed by a fire later tonight. It should be clear skies and it's almost a new moon, so the stars and the Milky Way should be out. 409.3857

Milky Way Cake 8 five cent Milky Way candy bars (I have to laugh at that price; I'm sure it is more now and have no idea what size bar) your guess is as good as mine LOL! 2 sticks oleo 2 cups sugar 4 eggs 2 1/2 cup flour 1 cup buttermilk 1/2 teaspoon soda 2 teaspoon vanilla Melt candy bars and 1 stick oleo in double boiler until smooth. Set aside. Cream sugar and 1 stick oleo, add eggs one at a time, beating until smooth. Add flour, buttermilk and soda. Add Milky Way mix. Then vanilla and nuts (on my recipe it did not list nuts so add what you think is right if you like nuts). Bake in greased and floured Bundt pan for 40 minutes for 1 hour at 325 degrees. ICING Melt 4 candy bars and 2 stick oleo in double boiler until smooth. Add 2 cups powdered sugar little at a time til desired thickness. Add a little milk if necessary. Spread over cake.

“WHAT COMFORTS YOU?” Some people find comfort in a nice hot cup of coffee on a cold winters morning. Some find comfort on a small country lake casting out a fishing line into the still calm waters. Still others find comfort curling up on the couch with a book and a box of chocolates. There is absolutely nothing wrong with any of those things. But what brings comfort to me is, wherever I may be, to simply close my eyes and think of - Heaven! Now don’t get me wrong, I enjoy fishing, reading, and anybody who knows me certainly knows that I enjoy eating. But for me it is the thought of Heaven that warms, soothes, and comforts me. With each passing day, hour, minute and breath it is at the forefront of my mind. If every person on earth, the un-saved, the apathetic, the atheist and the infidel, if absolutely every person on the planet were actually able to truly get a real grasp of what Heaven is like we would, all of us, be so homesick that the devil would not have a friend left on earth. What about you? ...

Amazing facts about space and planets* . On the moon’s surface are large dark patches called seas – because this is what people once believed they were. They are, in fact, lava flows from ancient volcanoes. . Quasars are the most distant known objects in the Universe. Even the nearest is billions of light years away. . The brightest quasar is 3C 273, 2 billion light years away. . The brightest stars in the night sky are not actually stars, but the planets Jupiter, Venus, Mars and Mercury. . Jupiter’s moon Europa may have oceans of water beneath its dry surface and it is a major target in the search for life in the Solar System. . There may be 20 trillion galaxies in the Universe. .

Universal motion Around the hub, the galaxies turn Pinwheels scrubbed, in magnetic urn Gravity attracts, while motion glides Equal force acts, to sustain the rides The Milky Way, is towed along Its center conveyed, by nature's song The flux lines strum, as they pass by A radio hum, an electrical sigh And so it be, with our own sun By magnetic sea, its field is spun The axial spin, then thus does tow It's satellites in an induction row The best conductors turn fairly fast While the resistors last with the past Lines of force roll round the outside Because the course is too dense inside When the field of the planet is low It tends to yield all turning flow If more than one set of poles it has It will turn yet, but less as lines pass
Research on first data release from Gaia-ESO project suggests the Milky Way formed by expanding out from the centre, and reveals new insights into the way our Galaxy was assembled.
I was kinda holding this one back for myself but..what the heck... Imagine if you could harness the magnetic forces of the Earth and use them to propel an space craft into outer space. I'm not sure how to get it back but I'm sure we could get to Mars in no time maybe the Milky Way..just cruise the Universe

THE TRUTH OF CREATION (PART - 1) Creation is creator’s boundless poetic composition. This composition is inexplicably mysterious to the modern science. The more a modern scientist unravels this poetry, the more perplexed and confounded he finds himself. In the beginning, the scientists assumed this earth, sky and the shining Sun, Moon and Stars alone to be the Universe – the entire Creation. However, the scientists like Copernicus and Galileo unfolded a part of the infinite poetical composition and the truth of the Solar System was revealed to us. With the Sun at the centre and the planets and the satellites revolving around it, for years we considered the creation confined to and enveloped within these narrow boundaries. But, then, this was followed by unfolding of more chapters of the mystery of the creation, which led to the revelation of amazing splendour of the creation. We came to know that our Solar System is only a tiny part of gigantic Milky Way Galaxy. The Milky Way Galaxy itself comprises o ...

There is nothing much u can do against the power of the the supreme being. While u can cry or scream aloud for not letting things happening your way the final choice is his. U can't change that. U got to remember his power. He is not only controlling our Solar System, Milky Way, all the galaxies, stars, cosmos, universe, black holes, plasmas , our minds and bodies too. You name it, he is there. Whilst getting extremely angry myself of many decisions he made in my life, which has shaped my life completely differently than was originally planned, the decision to cut electricity this evening to stop me trading was the latest. Friday night no power ! 14 to 15 people here in Wimbledon eagerly waiting to serve and of the all the days, Friday night just at six 'O'click no power, no business. My screaming and shouting only could fall into deaf ears. No Electricity! No power! No Communications! No business ! I screamed ! I shouted ! I looked towards the sky ! Then I realized what a mercy ! I am still living ! ...
remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving And revolving at nine hundred miles an hour, That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned, A sun that is the source of all our power. The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see Are moving at a million miles a day In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour, Of the galaxy we call the 'Milky Way'. Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars. It's a hundred thousand light years side to side. It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick, But out by us, it's just three thousand light years wide. We're thirty thousand light years from galactic central point. We go 'round every two hundred million years, And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions In this amazing and expanding universe. The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding In all of the directions it can whizz As fast as it can go, at the speed of light, you know, Twelve million miles a minute, and that's the fastest sp ...

Great place to visit and get away from the rat race. Been there two times, once to rent a private house for a week so I could snorkel Dean's Blue Hole and tour the south end of the island to see the various settlements which have a strong Cuban influence among the residents. The other time was to rent a private house on a small 10 acre island that had a sailboat and johnny boat to motor over to the main island for groceries, spent that week there to decompress from working two years without a vacation (no TV-Phones etc), just enjoyed sailing, spending time listening to waves wash up on the beach, fish & conch, and see the Milky Way at night. You had to fly via private charter (piper cub) from Georgetown Exuma Islands and buzz the church tower at Deadman's Cay and land so the caretaker can collect you.
Here is a gem for your morning coffee: June 1971- Joshua Tree- Alan Watts I am looking at things so far away that I'm seeing them as they were a million years ago, not today. Out, beyond our own flat helix of lights which, by sheer distance, condense as the Milky Way-that horizon towards which our planet tumbles eastwards all night-they have only numbers, no names. But the magician voice is reverberating without echo in the dark imaginary dome, tells me of lights nearer home-names whose strangeness to our tongue measures the far immensity of Aldebran, bright horn of the Bull, Arcturus, the Plowman's spear, Betelgeuse and Rigel, the Hunter's jewels, Vega, playing the Lyre, and Deneb, head of the Swan. See Rasalhague and Sabik, where the snake is grasped, Alphecca in the Northern Crown, Eltamin, ball for the Dragon, Hadar and Menkent, where the Horse Man prances, Fomalhaut with the Fish swimming south, and Altair, where the Eagle hangs.

I got to thinking about fate. That crazy concept that were not really responsible for the course our lives take, that its all predestined, written in the stars. Maybe that explains why, if you live in the city, where you can't even see the stars, your love life tends to feel a little more random. And even if our every man, every kiss, every heartache is pre ordered from some cosmic catalogue, can we still take the wrong step and wonder off our own personal milky way? I couldn't help but wonder, can you make a mistake amd miss your fate? C.B

"13 represents the harmonic frequency that the Earth, the Sun, the Solar System, the Milky Way Galaxy and the rest of the Universe is based on." - The COSMIC Spirit. November 12, 2013 - 13 - It is known to many persons who are not students of the occult that the Tarot is a method of divination by means of 78 symbolic picture cards, to which great antiquity and high importance are attributed by several expositors. And the literary history of the Tarot is also fairly well known. In ancient times the number 13 became a number of fear and superstition because the 13th card of the Tarot is the card of Death, and is pictured as a skeleton (the symbol of death) with a scythe reaping down men in a field of newly grown grass where young faces and heads appear cropping up on all sides. This image later became known as “The Grim Reaper,” and it was ascribed to the planet Saturn. In medieval England the standard fee of the hangman was 13 pence – a shilling and a penny… But 13 is not an unfortunate number, as ...

One Moment In time. When I stare out my window. Through the starry night. I only see your light. Within a hearts flight. Miles between the milky way, Can only separate fate. For only a day, When true love, Is meant to stay. Missing you, Only makes the heart , Grow stronger. Within the space of time, It grows fonder. Waiting for the one, Moment in time to intertwine. Looking out into the starry night. Within Space and time. Knowing that one day you could be mine. Waiting for that one moment in time. When two hearts Intertwine. Written By Author D.L.S.

UPDATE FROM THE GALACTIC FEDERATION - THE GALACTIC COUNCIL by Kathryn May 1/25/2014 We are the Galactic Council. We are overseeing the coordination of all the processes of Ascension in the Milky Way Galaxy. It is our duty to observe the progress of each planet and to maintain communication throughout the Galaxy. We have been carefully monitoring Earth as she moves toward the coming events of revaluation of currencies, Disclosure of our presence, and the landings. We keep all parties, including the Intergalactic Council, informed of the events on the ground, and we are responsible for the final decisions that are made concerning the unfolding of important events. We do not make the decisions alone; we consult with all the major parties. For instance, we are now intensely involved in meetings between Prime Creator, Mother/Father God, St. Germain and many of the other Ascended Masters of Planet Earth. We help them to coordinate their efforts with the Galactic teams who are helping at this time, and with thos ...
This post might set some records straight. Nah, I do not think I started the purple trend. I was just the spark. It is the color most often associated with royalty (as well as deep emerald green). These colors were difficult to dye in eras before ours, as a result they were expensive. Do not take shots at my reputation. You are going unnamed in an attempt to bring it to an end. Where I was raised can be toxic and apparently you have to watch who you associate with. I am quite sad to say that I can't rock with some of ya'll no more. You were supposed to embrace my struggle. Take me off your friends list or watch me rise to a place where I am able to contribute to the world rather than just take from it.

Something that makes me sad is that I won't be alive to see the Andromeda Galaxy collide with the Milky Way. Statistically our Solar System should survive, and if humans haven't obliterated themselves by then, people will be able to walk outside at night, look up, and see an entire galaxy with their naked eyes.

Moinak, Couldn't type back to you immediately at the French restaurant, as there were girls & friends & things & in my sleep-deprived state, i was doing my best to remember all I could, in lieu of napkins on which to scribble. The following was that supernova pouring from my brain: Prologue: As you know, a photon/electron/any sub-atomic particle does not go from A to B, like how most people think. The particle takes the path from A and every other drunken path it can, including zipping around the Milky Way and jumping off Mars to get to B. It is the summation (and cancellation) of all these infinitifying paths that leads us to see (or deduce) a path of greatest probability from A to B as reality. This observation at B is viewed as the collapse of this grand wave-function. Many saw (and still see) it as mathematical sleight-of-hand (but of course, nobody can find a better way to describe the reality we are seeing under microscope).

The telescope, Gaia, was launched from ESA's base in French Guiana three weeks ago, then journeyed towards L2, a gravitationally stable point in space some 1.5 million kilometres (900,000 miles) from Earth. After a final manoeuvre Wednesday, Gaia settled into a 180-day orbit around L2, the ESA statement said. A small course correction will be made next week to complete the positioning manoeuvre. "Entering orbit around L2 is a rather complex endeavour, achieved by firing Gaia's thrusters in such a way as to push the spacecraft in the desired direction whilst keeping the Sun away from the delicate science instruments," said spacecraft operations manager David Milligan

The bright summer Milky Way from Sagittarius to the Summer Triangle and Cassiopeia arches over Kings Canyon National park in California.
Tour of 47 Abell 1795 star that wanders too close to a supermassive black hole is doomed, as it should be ripped apart by extreme tidal forces. The debris from the star is expected to fall towards the black hole, getting hotter and producing intense X-rays. The X-rays should then fade as the hot gas spirals inward. Using Chandra, this behavior may have been spotted, for the first time, in a dwarf galaxy. Bright X-rays from the location of this small galaxy were seen in 1999 until they faded and eventually disappeared in 2005. In the past few years, Chandra and other astronomical satellites have identified several suspected cases of a supermassive black hole ripping apart a nearby star. This newly discovered episode is different because it has been associated with a much smaller galaxy than these other cases. The black hole responsible for the destruction may be only a few hundred thousand times as massive as the Sun, making it ten times less massive than the Galaxy's supermassive black hole.

Hello everybody out there, don't forget we will have our monthly full moon dinner with bonfire and they always spectacular full moon over the bay. this month will be the 16th and 17th, see you at the Milky Way Cafe and Deli
A new planetarium show, Journey to a billion Suns, premieres today in Hamburg, Germany, to tell the fascinating story of mapping the Milky Way, from ancient times to ESA’s recently launched Gaia mission.
And a snowy good morning to everyone from Yarmouth County Nova Scotia Canada N America Northern H'sphere - once known as Central Gondwanaland Earth Solar System Milky Way. That's as far as my terminology goes... The amazing thing about location is this sense of knowing where I am. Surely there's more to life than location location location! Lol!
An international team of astronomers used ALMA to observe the glowing remains of Supernova 1987A, which is in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a dwarf galaxy orbiting the Milky Way about 160 000 light‐years from Earth. SN 1987A is the closest observed supernova explosion since Johannes Kepler's observation of a supernova inside the Milky Way in 1604.

No matter how hard you try, you can never do or say the same thing at the same place twice. You are on a planet orbiting its star with a speed of 30 km/s. This star travels around the Milky Way Galaxy with a speed of 220 km/s. This galaxy is traveling across the expanding universe with a speed of 600 km/s. By the time you finish reading this paragraph, you would have already moved over 3000 km into a new location in the universe. You can’t go back to the previous one, it’s just . gone. I think it would be a waste of space to do a bad deed and leave a black spot in the universe, a spot that can never be filled again with a good deed. So, if you can’t do it twice, just think twice.
Good Morning Friends and welcome to 2014! Hope your new years eve was safe and enjoyable. Our theme this month is Creation. In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. ~Genesis 1:1 Our cover photo is an image of the Cygnus 5 star formation within the Cygnus contellation. Cygnus is a northern constellation on the plane of the Milky Way Galaxy.
For Southern Hemisphere astral travellers try this: follow the two pointer stars into the gateway in the Southern Cross then traverse the Milky Way end to end the mid way point is interesting then land in the Pleiades system. Or you can do it with your awareness when viewing the night sky. Its been designed like this. :)
Happy New Year to Everyone and Everything in the Milky Way!
Responding to an e-mail question posed by Catherine from Jackson, Mississippi. We know that NASA and other research centers recently touted that many new exoplanets have been discovered. Some claim that there are possibly 11 billion exoplanets and that a majority are in the habitable zone for life to exist in our Milky Way Galaxy and our galaxy teems with life. Our response, "extraordinary claims demands extraordinary evidence". We will use the logic of Dr. Enrico Fermi when he was told and asked about millions of intelligent civilizations that exist in the Universe. He asked simply, " so, where is everybody"? If I would have been there, I would looked at the individual that asked the question, smiled and simply said, spanked!
