Is this all just a happy coincidence that this astonishing phenomenon occurs only on Earth, the only planet know to contain intelligent life that can observe it? Or is it just further evidence for design in the universe?

You decide.

I love how you think your "designer" is so fucking inept and stupid that he thinks meaningless shit like eclipses is a message to you. Why communicate clearly when you can reveal your existence through something where it isn't at all clear that it's not a coincidence? :lol:

I agree, we should get rid of him before the forum is filled with topics on every single coincidence on Earth related to creationism.

What bothers me is not the presence of a creationist shill, it's the fact that his topics are so primitive and poorly put that debunking them does little to keep our minds whetted.

What would be really neat is if the designer got the combination of sizes right so that during a lunar eclipse the Earth's shadow was exactly the size of the moon, but he missed that by about 170%. Using Wortfish's logic*, that's evidence against design.

*Yeah, I know.

That just shows how arrogantly ignorant you are. If you weren't so quick to dismiss anything not taught by the Darwinist Ideology and persecute those who won't submit you would know that 170 is a combination of the high energy numbers 1 and 7 with the quantum spiritual multiplier number 0, making it an extremely spiritually powerful number. 1 and 7 also add up to 8, an extremely fortuitous and lucky number. The chances of the extremely spiritual and divine 170 occuring naturally are remote, pointing to divine origin design. Checkmate atheists!1!!



And that's numberwang. :dance:

Chasing Shadows at Jupiter: a livestream telescope observation

by Royal Astronomical Society
Free

On July 17th 2020, we will be remotely observing the shadow of the Solar System’s largest moon Ganymede as it passes over the face of Jupiter. Using computers within the UK, we will link to the Infrared Telescope Facility in Hawaii, observing the effects of the eclipse of Ganymede on Jupiter's upper atmosphere.

That will be intersting. Takes me back to my 'teens when I was invited to use the 6" Cooke refractor at Hampstead Heath Observatory. I observed a transit of one of the moons. (I belonged to the BAA, then).

A 3 metre telescope in Hawaii is about to live stream the event (via zoom) to my laptop. Marvellous! The eclipse shadow hits Jupiter any time now and will take about 4 hours to cross the planet. What a day! brb.

Also tubed!

More of a stellar eclipse tonight. A Kuiper belt object too small to be seen at this distance will occult a star for about half a minute...

via @TheAstroShake

...
Tonight, a ~726km wide object in the Kuiper Belt will make a star disappear, for ~33 seconds!

I will be recording the occultation, and showing it to you, LIVE.

Livestream link: https://youtu.be/H2JN8sl4Eoc

...

The livestream will begin at 22:30 UTC, TONIGHT, July 26, 2020.
