Astrosphere for June 27, 2007

Just give you all a warning, I’m going to be moving back to Vancouver, Canada in 2 days, so there might be a few interruptions. I’ll try to keep it to a minimum.

Today’s astrophoto comes from Paul F. Campbell. It’s a series of pictures of the Moon stitched together into a mosaic.

John Moore has created a detailed poster of the Moon.

Scientific American has an interesting story about Transient Lunar Phenomena. They’re not UFOs, just outgassing on the Moon.

Steinn Sigurdsson reports that a planet has been discovered orbiting a white dwarf.

What’s worse, a fast moving star moving through the Solar System, or a slow moving one? systemic has the surprising answer.

Pamela Gay continues blogging about The Universe on The History Channel. If only we had that kind of budget for Astronomy Cast.

I agree with George Dvorsky on his Sentient Developments blog. If aliens wanted us dead, they’d have done it a long time ago.
