You do not need a parachute to skydive, you only need a parachute to skydive twice...
"It takes all the running you can do just to stay in one place." - The Red Queen
“I am the only person to ever ace a 1951 USAF resolution test. My 'to observe' list says 'done'. I do not use charts or atlases when I starhop; men do not use maps. One of my sketches won an SBIG deep sky imaging contest. I am the life of star parties I have never attended. I never say anything looks like a faint fuzzy - not even a faint fuzzy. Pilots aim green laser pointers at me. Don Pensack proofreads my CN forum posts.” - The Most Interesting Astronomer in the Universe

Quote:The app Living Earth HD makes a great companion for Moon Globe. You get a detailed Earth view with the current cloud patterns from weather sats, updates q3 hours. You can pause, spin, zoom. Save favorite cities for temp and weather. I wish you could animate the clouds a few frames. Nevertheless, brilliant!
