Join the Venus Transit Astronomy Party at Abilene State Park June 9th [VIDEO]

 

We just had a rare event happen with the annular solar eclipse, coming up in June there will be a similar event with the planet Venus. It’s called the Transit of Venus 2012 and it’s when the planet passes directly between the sun and the earth. Unless you plan on living a very long life this will be the only one you will ever see; the next one won’t be until 2117.

Don’t Miss the Annular Solar Eclipse Sunday, May 20 [VIDEO]

 

I remember going to the planetarium as a kid and learning about a solar eclipse.  The main things I remember is never, ever look directly into the sun and that they are pretty rare events.  When you have the chance, make sure you get out and watch it happen.  This Sunday, May 20th will be the first annular solar eclipse to be seen in the U.S. in almost 18 years. You won’t see it again until about 2023.  The eclipse will only be seen by a lucky few though. Being in West Texas makes Abilene some of those 6.6 million people lucky enough to be in the path of the eclipse. So here’s what you need to know to view this phenomenon.

Are "Preppers" Crazy or Smart? [POLL]

I’ve watched a couple of the episodes of the National Geographic TV show “Doomsday Preppers” and I have to say I’m a little intrigued and frightened at the same time. I’m from the school of thinking that if something happens to wipe out the world then I don’t really think I would want to survive myself. However, I try to watch the show with an open mind but some of what the “preppers” do is a little crazy and dramatic in my mind.
