 superman photo game

This game is flippin’ fantastic! What is it with superheroes being newspaper reporters/photographers? Superman, Spider-Man… Hmmm…maybe because newspapers are the best thing ever. Jeremy and Grant, you don’t see any radio superheroes, now do you? Print is better than radio.

AURORA WATCH: A solar wind stream is heading for Earth and it could cause a geomagnetic storm when it arrives on April 21st or 22nd. Sky watchers from Scandinavia to Alaska should be alert for auroras.

 

WEEKEND METEORS: Earth is entering the dusty tail of Comet Thatcher, and this will cause a mild meteor shower this weekend. It’s called the Lyrid meteor shower because the bits of incandescent comet dust appear to come from the constellation Lyra. The best time to look is during the dark hours before dawn on Sunday, April 22nd, and Monday, April 23rd, when you can expect to see a shooting star overhead every 5 minutes or so: sky map.
