The Lights in the Sky Are Stars

Universe Today is a news site for astronomy geeks. Don't miss its sibling, the Bad Astronomy Forum, which not only features examples of bad astronomy, but also discussions of space exploration and astrophotography. (If you like astrophotography, you're probably already aware of NASA's astronomy photo of the day.) But my favorite part of the whole site is the free astronomy eBook, What's Up 2007: 365 Days of Skywatching. If only it would only stop raining, maybe I'd grab some binoculars and go outside for some stargazing...

That astrophotography forum is pretty cool. Thanks!

And here I thought I was going to get a rare zero-comment post...

Actually (and I know this is more appropriate to metatalk), one of the reasons I don't post more often in the blue is that even when I find something cool like this, I can't craft a blurb that appeals to people. I'm glad some of you enjoyed it! :)

A mefiwhack?

You should post more. You are one of maybe three or four mefites whose posts I always like.

I find that a large number of the high-comment-count posts get to be that way by being controversial. Arguments almost always make for the longest threads. And even in the shorter threads, a large amount of the posting is snark. (When I posted about buying telescopes a year or so ago, the majority of the early comments were people saying that people who buy telescopes have penis envy.) So having a large number of comments is far from necessarily being a good thing.
