Sky Survey

On this last day of May, I present the Phototopic Sky Survey—a seemless combination of photographs taken of the sky from all over the world. Check out the Interactive 360° feature that allows you to scan the span. You can also zoom to see star clusters and constellations in more detail. It is beautiful.

Jack Horkheimer would be proud.

Rest in Peace, Star Hustler

While I was touring Yooperland with my family, the iconic Jack Horkheimer—the Star Hustler—died at the young age of seventy-two last Friday. I grew up watching Horkheimer on P.B.S., and I am saddened to see him go. He was a unique character, and he provided a fine service. I just learnt that the Star Hustler became the Star Gazer in the internet age in order to avoid confusingly awkward searches. I wonder if Horkheimer got a kick out of that. Memory eternal!

Here is the Star Hustler from A.D. 1985:

Keep looking up!
