Sky Tonight—April 18, moon leaving Spica and Saturn behind

Courtesy of EarthSky A Clear Voice for Science Visit EarthSky at www.EarthSky.org Last night, the full “Egg Moon” was quite close to Spica, the brightest star in the constellation Virgo the Maiden.

One man’s joke is another man’s hug

Rev. James L. Snyder To anybody that knows me, (and can anybody really know anybody else?); they would readily affirm that I am not addicted to hugging. Let me point out very quickly I am not allergic to it either. I just believe a good hearty handshake says everything I want to say to anybody I meet. This is biblical.

It’ll be the star like object close to tonight’s almost-full waxing gibbous moon. Note Saturn’s golden color, if you can. If you can’t, try viewing this world through binoculars.

Berthoud Bash 2011 A big success

Berthoud Bash 2011 A big success

This year's Berthoud Bash was a big success by any measure. The biggest measure of course is the fund raising for the Berthoud Schools which topped $100,000 this year. Congratulations to all the volunteers who make up the Berthoud Schools Fund. The funds will go to support technology in Berthoud schools. A "paddle auction" as the finale had set a goal to raise $20,000 to fund a variety of school activities that would be lost due to district lack of funding. The generosity of the crowd was ...
