- It's not often that you find yourself in skies as dark as in Goblin Valley, Utah. But when you do, you try and take a big panorama, from the top of a big hill, saying a lot of bad words while hauling stuff up there. It also helps to have the world's most patient boyfriend (@erictheastrojunkie), who not only helps haul me up said big hill, talks me down after various star-related meltdowns, and who waits while I take an age to finish taking photos, but who also sits and chills with me under the stars on nights like this 😘! On a different note, I've recently found myself wanting to back-up and share my photos more often. The idea of losing images that remind me of such amazing times makes me feel a bit queasy. One of the ways I'm now backing-up my photos is using a cloud service called @bublup (Bublup.com). It allows me to keep track of photos from different trips in folders that I can then share with other people. I like it because it's not just a cloud service, but makes the uploading of photos really interactive (and looks good) so that sharing them feels more like telling a story than a plain boring folder. If anyone would like to also try a premium version of Bublup the nice people over there have given me a promo code (UtahAstro) so that you also get 100 GB free storage for a year! Try it out and let me know what you think!

- O que está acontecendo dentro e ao redor da Nebulosa da Caverna? Para ajudar a descobrir, o telescópio espacial Spitzer, da NASA, examinou essa região de formação estelar opticamente escura em quatro cores de luz infravermelha . A Nebulosa da Caverna , catalogada como Sh2-155, é bastante brilhante em infravermelho, revelando detalhes não apenas dos pilares internos de gás e poeira, mas também do aglomerado de estrelas iluminado - tudo próximo ao topo da imagem. O brilho vermelho em torno da entrada da caverna é criado por poeira aquecida por jovens estrelas brilhantes. À direita está o Cepheus B, um aglomerado de estrelas que se formou anteriormente a partir da mesma nuvem de gás e poeira. Outras estrelas interessantes de Cepheus vêm à luz também no infravermelho, incluindo aquelas iluminando uma nebulosa ainda mais jovem em direção ao fundo da imagem, e uma estrela fugitiva empurrando um choque de proa , tingida de vermelho perto do centro da imagem. Esta região se estende por cerca de 50 anos-luz e fica a cerca de 2.500 anos-luz em direção à constelação do rei da Etiópia ( Cefeu ).

- Rotation Of The Moon 🌝 Around Earth 🌍.
The moon orbits the Earth once every 27.322 days. It also takes approximately 27 days for the moon to rotate once on its axis. As a result, the moon does not seem to be spinning but appears to observers from Earth to be keeping almost perfectly still.⠀

- Never play with the feelings of others, because you may win the game, but the risk is that you will surely lose the person for life time. ✨🍾
Have you ever played with others' feelings?

- Far more likely than not, all your goals and accomplishments will be swallowed by eternity and forgotten forever. Happy Monday, haha. Although this may not be the most pleasant thought to start the week, I think is important to consider and can be rather helpful.
I am inspired to write about the futileness of our life goals after a bar conversation I had this weekend with a friend. Our conversation wandered through the familiar territory of determinism and free will, and ultimately landed on meaning. More specifically, we discussed where meaning is to be found in a predetermined cosmos. If you need to be reminded of your lack of free will: you didn’t choose your parents, you had absolutely no control over the innumerable occurrences that were necessary for your arbitrary arrival into the Milky Way, and you don’t even have control over the next thoughts that are going to arise in your mind! That debate aside, we pondered why any of us should do anything if we are simply pawns of the universe. I have always felt that this question has an easier answer than most people assume. That is, just because the universe is predetermined doesn’t mean that you cannot enjoy the experience of the moment. Even if we have no control over our place in the universe, we still have our consciousness. Many scientists have made the point that in a cosmos filled with probable illusions (e.g. free will), the one thing we have without doubt is the ability to experience something (i.e. consciousness). So, even if we have no free will, we still have experience—and it is in that where meaning is to be found (maybe).
Bringing us back to the top, this conversation wrapped up on the seemingly nihilistic note that eventually the Universe’s entropy will reach 100 and the lights will go out. All your accomplishments, longings, experiences, and unsatisfied goals will be lost forever. Forever forever. I think that this recognition serves as another healthy reminder to enjoy the present moment. An individual’s accomplishments (and the commonly positively correlated ego) can probably be added to the aforementioned list of cosmic illusions. At the end of the game, all will be dark.
