Google Gone

Something odd has happened to my blog...

I added a separate google account for my phone and now my blog no longer works :-(

It's probably just me being old and confused, but I find the numerous ways of communicating and logging in with google very annoying! So, for now, I'm giving up with Blogger and I'll be using my Blue Shift Gallery page on Facebook instead. You are most welcome to join me there!

Star light

I've just bought some specialist equipment for viewing the sun. Here's my first picture.
It look even more spectacular through the viewfinder, the edges shimmering as it moves across the frame...

*** WARNING: Never look at the sun directly or through any optical equipment ***
This requires special filters and equipment.

I'm glad the MSL landed safely, but can you imagine if aliens ever landed on Earth in a similar fashion?

We'd think we were under attack from all the chunks of metal and burning wreckage randomly raining down on us!
