Spotted: Jupiter & its 4 largest satellites

We followed Galileo and peeped into the heavens. Jupiter and its 4 largest satellites looked awesome. I may try another eyepiece tomorrow for a better magnification.

The photograph, captured thru an ordinary digital camera, doesn’t do any justice to what we saw. Along the way, Asha, true to her name (which means ‘hope’), attained the height of optimism by trying to click a flash-assisted photograph of Jupiter! Next time, I would expect her to do the same with some black holes. Astronomy awaits the genius of my wife!

This is what Bertrand Russell said about religion...

Religion is based, I think, primarily and mainly upon fear. It is partly the terror of the unknown and partly, as I have said, the wish to feel that you have a kind of elder brother who will stand by you in all your troubles and disputes. ... A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men.
