I found a frightening sign of the times in sos_usa:



So, does this mean if I circle the block a couple times, looking for an address, I will be reported as a terrorist? I'm thinking that terrorism has stopped being a threat, and has become a marketing tool.

As nature was not working with me this evening, in my efforts to photo the moon and other celestrial objects (lot's of small clouds gettign in the way everytime I would line up on something), a question occurred to me. The moon is covered in craters. Has anyone ever photographed a meteor impacting the moon? And when was the laast meteor impact on the moon to create a crater viable with a small telescope? For all the scars the moon has, there seems to be very little activity.
