The moon still exists even though we can't see it.


The cheese exists even though they couldn't see it.

Last night's near full moon rise...


Shot though my window so there's some ghosting.  A single shot (no compositing) with no color enhancement, it really was dark orange.

For the first time in 13 years, a full moon will occur today, Friday the 13th
If you're looking for a fun Friday night, considering inviting your friends and/or resident canine over to howl at the lunar disk together

The uncrewed X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle Mission 5 landed at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center Shuttle Landing Facility at 3:51 a.m. ET Sunday, the Air Force confirmed. The 780-day mission shattered the spaceplane’s own record of almost 718 days in orbit, which was set by Mission 4 when it returned to Earth in May 2017, Space.com reported.

just thinking about that landing all on its own. isnt that the future of airline flight too? no need for pilots to go up with the plane. a team of 20 ground pilots can keep on top of 40 or 60 planes cruising and they can take turns as teams landing them or taking off and dealing with any big emergencies at cruising altitude.
