Cue 'Also sprach Zarathustra'

This view of Venus, Jupiter and the moon the other night almost had me jumping up and down and tossing a bone in the air - if you know the film 2001, you'll know what I mean.

  2. Do I detect a black slab in the picture whose sides are in the ratio 1:4:9 just above the moon?

  5. Craig, feel free to repost - sorry about the delayed reply, but we've been on holiday.

  6. Thank you. I hope you enjoyed your holiday.

    I remember that scene from 2001: A Space Odyssey. I believe that bone nearly hit the Pan Am space shuttle. : )
