A crescent moon, the streak of the ISS, and Jupiter are all captured in this picture by amateur astronomer Stephan Seip.
In totally unrelated news, this blog will go dark for a few days while I go camping at a music festival with my wife, thepaisleyelf! If you are of the countercultural persuasion and anywhere close, you should come out to Byrdfest in Ozark, AR this weekend. It’s a beautiful festival in a beautiful place full of beautiful people listening to beautiful music, and if you are a fellow tumblr person thepaisleyelf and I would love to hang out with you! Tickets are only $60. I’m sure our pictures and stories will be on her blog when we get back, so if you are interested in what my life is like outside of my love for science, check it out.
Sorry for the personal post. They will continue to be very rare- regular science posts will resume next week.
