I've been working on my Night Sky Journal recently and thought I would share a spread with you today.
As technology changes so does the way people look at the sky. My planet photos on the left aren't particularly recent since I took them out of an 1970's atlas, but they are much more advanced than the old map and zodiac strips on the right hand side. That image comes from a calendar I used back in 2008 and had a vintage sky map theme. I added a few little bits and bobs to that page too.
I recently listened to a book on cosmology by Neil Degrasse Tyson which was really interesting but it amazed me how differently astronomers view the sky today. They measure things like microwaves and talk about the space time continuum and lots of physics going back to Einstein's 2 relativity theories. Way back when the constellations were named people basically just looked bare eyes at the night sky.
So there's not much else new here. I feel like there's been a lot of dark this week as we've had some stormy weather and the days are quickly getting very short. I'm off from work tomorrow as I need to go back to Boston for my 6 month kidney donation check up. I can't believe the surgery was already 6 months ago.
So without anything else to babble about, I will keep this short.
Have great end of your week.
