Great article. The US-Europe relationship is extremely important.
“As China attempts to spread its authoritarian values across the globe, & especially as the competition between China and the US intensifies, Europe has conspicuously avoided siding with the US over China.” New piece from @AKendallTaylor & me in @Politico https://politi.co/2yV5fcg
This was a great episode. X-Wing is one of my formative gaming experiences - I missed Doom/Quake and jumped on the C&C train until Half-Life came out. Those games made me love mission based campaigns.
This week, @The_Katbot and @jason_wilson join us to talk about the X-Wing series! And by "join us" I mean "do all of our work for us." They... know a lot about these games. https://retronauts.com/article/1276…
LRT: Here are stars orbiting the 4 million solar mass black hole at the center of the Milky Way. This isn’t a simulation, it’s 21 years of observations. S0-2 hits a max speed of ~3% the speed of light.

Look CLOSELY and you'll see Jupiter and Saturn on either side of the moon. Saturn is more difficult to see -- it appears smaller and not as bright as Jupiter. #wusa9weather #nightsky #jupiter #saturn @firstname.lastname@example.org @email@example.com @TenaciousTopper@twitter.com @MiriWeather@twitter.com @LorenzoHall@twitter.com

Posted on r/astrophotography about my ISS transit capture: https://www.reddit.com/r/astrophotography/comments/clqngh/iss_transit_of_the_sun_on_aug_2_2019/
Here's the ISS transit of the Sun I recorded today!
In order, this is:
- A static shot from my 8" Schmitt-Cassegrain
- A video from the 8", full speed and 1/3 speed
- A static shot from my 80mm refractor
- A video from the refractor, full speed and 1/3 speed
- The telescope setup
This was pretty neat to setup - it's been a while since I used the solar filters, and this is the first time I've had both scopes up and running in the new observatory.
Time for my semi-annual visit to Nats Park
