May 13/10 North of Grand Falls, NB on West bound Route 2 at Bourgoin Rd Exit.
Venus shines like an on-coming plane, very impressive. This was the first good clear observing evenings in quite a while.
By the way, that is my work truck.
The New Moon was at 0300 hrs 14 May/10. I looked all day, into 15 May and it stayed cloudy so I did not see it.

This pic was taken from the post below titled "Jupiter loses one of its stripes and scientists are stumped as to why"
Jupiter has lost one of its storm belts. It will definitely look different this summer.

Some awesome pics of the sun taken with a backyard telescope, ccd camera, and a laptop.
This is a great hobby, but don't try it without getting the proper filters and finding out how to do it right. The sun will blind you almost instantly, if you don't use the right filters.

My theory is that the large hadron collider is producing gravity waves that are in turn is causing the global earth quakes.
I have been told that gravity waves only occur a when super massive objects like stars or black holes collide. When super massive objects collide, maybe it is their atoms colliding that is causing the gravity waves, hence, when we collide atoms, we recreate the effect of massive objects colliding.
Again, this is just a theory.

This is my first solar observing session. It was suppose to rain all day today, so I was glad to see it clear off in the afternoon.
Special thanks to Mike P. of the SJAC for giving me a piece of filter which I duct taped to the lid of my 150 mm reflector.
Location: Saint John, NB
Date: 5 May/2010 1600-1700 hrs
Weather: 19 degrees Celcius, partly cloudy, windy.
