Astrodork....somewhere in the universe

A home for all things that spark my imagination, perhaps yours as well.

Astrodork.  Someone with an overly fond love of everything astronomical.  From the real to the imaginary to somewhere in between (think dark energy ).  Sometimes things right here on this planet.  I enjoy astronomy, photography, and more, and hope to showcase some of that on my website.   

Lonely International Space Station.  Brighter than anything else in the sky save the Moon, the ISS arches over our backyard August 14.  No Shuttle to accompany it along the way.  We waved at the crew of six...did you?  Although this was just past the peak of the Perseid meteor shower, no luck in these two minutes.  Checkout Spaceweather.com/flybys for an easy reference for bright satellites.
