I just wanted to draw your attention to the Astrophotography section of the Bad Astronomy/Universe Today forum. Members have been posting tons of amazing images every day; too many for me to feature in Universe Today. Here’s the catch, though. You have to be a member of the forum to see the photos. Membership is totally free, just register from this page.
And speaking of the forum, one of our members, parallaxicality, recently wrote up an article on Wikipedia that was recently featured as one of the best articles on the site. Read about the Definition of a Planet, and then give your congrats to parallaxicality.
P.S. The American Astronomical Society is having its annual meeting in Calgary this year, and they’re generating enormous amounts of news. Universe Today is going to be pretty big for the next few days. Enjoy.
