Welcome to The_Piper, :cheers:

Venus has recently passed inferior conjunction with Sol and will soon be the "Morning Star" again. Anyhoo, the resulting "horns" of its atmosphere caught "green flashes" as it set recently and was observed through the Earth's turbulent lower atmosphere. Very :cool:

That is cool. Hopefully we'll get clear skies someday so I can see the morning star again.

Note: This image is fairly detailed if you click twice on the image in order to zoom in. There is also an unidentified streak of light near the brightest unlabeled star (I think that the star is Canopus).

I found this odd link on my YouTube page this morning... the CosmoSapiens channel has a livestream event running for an event that is due to occur in: 38 02:18:00 - i.e. March 4th!
... SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched DSCOVR mission (Deep Space Climate Observatory) for NOAA on 11 February 2015, from Cape Canaveral. After the payload separation, 2nd stage did not have enough fuel to return to Earth's atmosphere. It has been out-of-control since February 2015.

Currently it is very likely that for the first time a piece of space hardware will unintentionally strike the Moon.

Hey, that was only 4 seconds!! I guess it doesn't change much in an hour from our vantage point. :lol: :shifty:
