Crazygirl just posted about tropical storm Arlene. That gave me the perfect chance to try out Megatrack for OSX after having it downloaded for a while. The image below was taken from its jpg capture option then I cropped it in PhotoShop. She also linked to the National Hurricane Service, where you can subscribe to the XML Feed to get updates, very nice of them.

It was another interesting weekend for us space geeks. Opportunity Landed on Mars. It was interesting to watch the control room as things were unfolding, its had to be quite a rush for all those involved when it landed safely. They were all celebrating and cheering, what a cool project. It even managed to catch its shadow as it headed down. Space.com also has a Mars Rover Update Page.
For my fellow
Dallasians (is that right?) Dallasites (thanks Mike) the GuideLive has some information up on view lights this year.
The Guardian has a good article up on nerdom. Worth the read on this rainy cold lunch hour, at least here its rainy and cold.
