Great links to the pictures, although I have no idea what anyone is saying!

Guess some people get all the luck. I'm glad it was a good show!

Well, here's hoping for a chance in August!

I guess I'll just ask that if there is anythink really interesting there, just pass the info along. I suspect that most of it is just chatting about it. Thanks for offering!

Yes but the rise of water usage would be exorbitant.

Air Show Crash

Post by fjgiie »

Blue Angles Air Show at Beaufort, SC, Marine Corps Air Station

I just got off the phone with Chris who was an eye-witness to the F/A-18A Hornet that went down during the air show. He said that "the sixth plane was tying to catch up and made a sharp 90 degree turn and was sideways, then it went inverted and went down behind the trees."

The Blue Angels' F/A-18A.

Paper


Eta Carinae Nebula
http://www.spacetelescope.org/images/ht ... 0707a.html

The wikipedia article shows where Eta Carinae is located within the nebula.
Eta Carinae has not supernovaed yet, only lost some weight I believe.
Find out where it is then ZOOM in close and see the double look Eta Carinae has.
