Watch the planets and the moon! - This Week's Sky at a Glance

In the middle of July, watch as the moon parades past a different planet each night: On Wednesday, Venus is above and to the right; Thursday, Mars; Friday, Saturn.
Want to see Jupiter? Get up before sunrise and look to the south. It's the brightest "star" in the sky.

Oil Leak Stopped...

It's been a while since my last blog entry. Summer's been busy!
Oil has been spilling into the Gulf for about three months now, and the well has finally been capped. We'll be watching over the next two days to see if the cap will hold.
