Just made an ultimatum post on Facebook asking people to unfriend me if they are not capable of using google.com to properly research their blindly reposted political/scientific/whatever "information." How do I internet? This is not the way. #migraine #doingitwrong

Insert some joke about causing gas. 
We need to come up with a reason to order one of these stunning Jupiter cakes…

Can we pretend it’s our birthday?

For the love of science, please circle +CosmoQuest.

Your circle will a) help us show you new ways to engage in science, b) help us show NASA you want to learn about new ways to engage in science.

Check out the Moon and Jupiter :D
It's time for another Virtual Star Party. Join +Fraser Cain  +Pamela Gay  +Scott Lewis  +Thad Szabo  and a team of astronomers from across the globe as they explore the night sky with telescopes streaming into a live Google+ Hangout. We should be able to see Jupiter, maybe the Moon, and a whole range of wonderful deep sky objects.

We'll even take requests. :-)

Here's a link to last week's star party if you're wondering what it's all about.
Virtual Star Party - Jan. 20, 2013: The Welcome Rookie Edition

This explainer video will be replaced with the live video when we're about to start. Also, remember that the start time can be a little rough, it's tough to get everything lined up perfectly to start at 6:00 PM PST sharp.
