Trojan Asteroid

Hard to believe, but this is the first asteroid found that shares an orbit, with the earth, around the sun.

Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley

I know a studio version of this song is available, but this one is wayyyy better. Incomparably great.

But which one is which?

Camera Investigations #7

M81 and M82

Here is a photo I took using the Contax piggybacked for a few minutes.

Later when studying it could not identify what part of the sky it was. I changed the levels so it was easier to see the stars and sent out a request in the form of a contest, and David Fields, the president of Orion in Oak Ridge, correctly identified it as seen here. The photo on the right is a low resolution image of the photo corrected for clarity.

I just tonight found the notes for the photo. It was taken at Live Oak State Park Campground in Edisto SC. Here is a zoomed in section on the object I was try to capture - M81 and M82 (2 galaxies). They are at the bottom. (One looks like a red star in the SkyX version because it's not zoomed in enough).

Here is the photo zoomed in highly on only the 2 galaxies, side by side with the corresponding image in SkyX:

Ohio Late Term Abortion Law

Gov. John Kasich yesterday signed House Bill 78, which bans abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy unless a doctor determines that the fetus is not viable and could not survive outside the womb.
Rob Nichols, a spokesman for Kasich, confirmed that the governor signed the Republican-backed bill in a private ceremony.

Ohio joins 39 other states with limits on late-term abortions. The bill requires physicians who perform abortions to submit reports to the Ohio Department of Health within 15 days after the woman is discharged and allows for an abortion in cases of medical emergencies.

The bill does not permit abortions in cases of rape or incest and was supported by anti-abortion groups.
"Life is a gift from God and one way that we express our ongoing gratitude for it is by respecting it," Kasich said in a statement. "This bill does that in a very fundamental way, and I'm proud to have signed it into law."
State Rep. Nickie Antonio, D-Lakewood, said the bill "will have a chilling effect on women's reproductive health care in Ohio."

Another bill that landed on Kasich's desk yesterday but has yet to receive the governor's signature would make it easier for uniformed military personnel and overseas voters to receive absentee ballots.
