    I caught the GRS AND a shadow transit of Io in the same image the other night. It looked pretty cool through my 127mm Mak:

    I think that was from French TV back in the late 60's. It's a classic track, possibly lip synced on that show. P.P. Arnold is still gigging I think, Marriott died in a house fire in the early 90's. The Small Faces had a huge following in the UK and are generally considered one of the precursors of Britpop.



    The less said about that, the better lol ...

    I saw Mars with naked eye through cloud yesterday morning. It's really high.



    Almost made me want to take up Latvian folk dancing for some reason. It's not even a Full Moon either. Must be something in the air.

    The lead singer kinda looks like Austin and his mannerisms are similar, lol.
