February's Lunar Eclipse...

Jim's first attempt at astrophotagraphy netted him several respectable pictures of February's lunar eclipse.

These pictures were taken through a 32mm eyepiece on a 8" SCT telescope. Magnification would be about 60x.

Respectable INDEED! Those are cool.

So tell me Jim, what is the history behind hoppy beers? Do you like them? What are some of the best hoppy beers out there?

Dear Jim,

I just recently discovered your blog. I must say- great stuff. I'm a big fan. Very excited to be submitting my first question. Here goes...

On a recent hike through Yosemite, I had the pleasure of listening to two of my male friends bicker like an old married couple for a good hour on the subject of littering. Specifically, if one were to dispose of a peach pit on the ground in a national park, is it littering?

One said no, a peach pit is a seed, being placed back into the environment in its natural state and it takes little time to decompose. My other friend disagreed completely- saying that this is still littering because you are introducing a foreign species to an environment, since peach trees don't flourish in Yosemite. (Disappointing). This would in turn disrupt the ecosystem, etc. (J Bro is such a wannabe hippie).

So Jim, I ask you- who is right? Your answer will help me end this lovers quarrel and establish some order amongst my social circle once again.

Anxiously awaiting your response,
