Growing up in the Deaf Community, as my Father was deaf, I would never give that visually rich experience up. The fluid movement of ideas and stories  was my first journey into the world of ‘other.’ Since then I have understood ‘other’ with empathy and with a deep marginal native’s view. As my own identity transforms I feel comfortable in my ‘skins’ as they adjust and transform forever.

Earthlings aboard the International Space Station orbit Earth every 90 minutes at a speed of 17,500 miles per hour, but not long ago we experienced our first and subsequent views of our home, earth.

OVERVIEW – the Movie

April Salazar grew up hearing that her family was descended from the Spanish conquistadors who conquered the Southwest. But her story reveals the truth behind her ancestry.

Thanks April Salazar for your “I’m X percent Native…right?” @LatinoUSA story today!

Happy Birthday Martin. Wonderful find of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s 1962 Speech in NYC on reel-to-reel tape.

Thank you so much John Dobson (1915-2014) for teaching me and generations of star watchers how to build your DIY telescopes, to experience earth’s moon reflected on our faces and to know we are all made of star dust so treat each other well. Safe travels and enjoy the ride John, we know you will.

Geminid Meteor ShowerThe annual Geminid meteor shower peaks next week. Sadly, the Moon will be near-full brightening the sky for most of the night causing rates to be lower. However, the Geminids will still put on a good show pretty much anywhere that isn’t overcast, so don’t worry. Southern Hemisphere viewers will see lower rates, with the peak being ~40-60 meteors/hour in some locations, so you won’t be missing out as was the case for the Persieds earlier this year. Use the Fluxtimator to estimate the rate in your location.
Meteors will be visible when the radiant point is above the horizon from your location. The radiant point is in the constellation Gemini (Jupiter will be too, so get your binocs/telescopes), right next to the Orion constellation. You can spot meteors anywhere in the sky and it is not necessary to look towards the radiant point as some may believe. So go out, find somewhere dark, look up and enjoy the show.

Thanks for the Update here!
