Breathtaking Footage of an Annular Solar Eclipse Captured at Sunrise
Idk if this counts as a peeve more of an art-astronomy pet peeve
but when people draw the cresent moon and where the dark, shaddowed part of the moon is they put in stars
like studdenly that part of the moon is invisible instead of just being in the shadow
wait no peOPLE ACTUALLY DO THIS???
really stupid question though but like, aren’t there stars in front of the moon??? like??? space isn’t two dimensional so someone putting a couple stars in front of the shadow wouldn’t necessarily be wrong?? because aren’t there stars all around in space and?????? im just going to be confused forever frick uvu;
hun if there was a star infront of the moon we’d be fucking dead
omg, I can’t even…
Arthur and I constantly listened and sang along to a couple of our grandpa’s Tom Lehrer LPs when we were kids, which meant that I knew all the words to most of his songs, including the really salty ones, and including this one, even though I still don’t really know who Wernher von Braun is. Gosh, that must have been cute. Today is Tom Lehrer’s 85th birthday. Happy birthday, Mr Lehrer!
Space fans do :)
