Astronomy Picture of the Day

Milky Way over Troll’s Tongue

Explanation: You have to take a long hike to see the Troll’s Tongue — ten hours over rocky terrain. And in this case, it took three trips to capture the landform below a clear night sky. Trolltunga itself is a picturesque rock protrusion extending about 700 meters over mountainous cliffs near Lake Ringedalsvatnet in Norway. The overhang is made of billion-year-old Precambrian bedrock that was carved out by glaciers during an ice-age about 10,000 years ago. The featured picture is a composite of two exposures, a 15-second image of the foreground Earth followed 40 minutes later by an 87-second exposure of the background sky. Thousands of discernable stars dot the backdrop starscape in addition to billions of unresolved stars in the nearly vertical band of our Milky Way Galaxy.

Speaking of evil, here is the face of evil.


The Editor:  This title seems to cover everything, LL.

World Citizen Cat:  It sure does.  We want to keep getting those disappointed NY Slimes readers.   My first article is about a fool, oops, and pod.  One comment about the article said the woman was a Millennial who had eaten too many Tide Pods.

Here is a real Super Pod, hopefully on their way to clean up San Fransicko.

This is a continuing topic of The Sphinx.  It has been going on for years.  No one has enough money to correct the construction SNAFU’s.   They are waiting for an earthquake to knock the ” screw up ” down.   The old government building inspector has retired to a private island in the New Hebrides.  A little tilt won’t hurt unless it’s Pinball.

Here is a big oops, the government didn’t close the highway.  Drivers had to flee their vehicles.

Obama says he created Trump’s new Jobs, lowest unemployment rate in forty ( 40 ) years, and all the wage increases.  He also said if he had more pallets he would have solved the North Korean problem.

This is the only job he is qualified for.
