Lots of links from astronomy and space blogs including a little science.
An Eclipse seen in America and Europe on Tuesday changed the moon’s colour from pink to blood red. This came from the sun, Earth and the moon aligning. The moon swung into the shadow of the Earth to cause these effects. Even though the moon was in the shadow of the Earth the Moon didn’t [...]
One day in the future perhaps not 10 years from now we will be able to look up into the night sky at particular stars and know that they have Earth like planets orbiting them. SETI is going to scan the stars with exoplanets for intelligent life in 2011 and you never know do you? [...]
