I'm sorry that I haven't had the time that I used to have to be able do justice to this blog. Almost all the events and WunderPhotos in the previous blog entry were from last year so I made this new entry with just the links (above) that will allow you to find out what's current and upcoming.

Your comments or images relevant to astronomy, spaceflight or weather are welcome. Any really big news on those subjects I'll probably post a comment or images myself.
