Among the most damaging allegations: Jackson was drunk and "wrecked a government vehicle" while at a going-away party. It also says that "on at least one occasion" Jackson "could not be reached when needed because he was passed out drunk in his hotel room."

The documents did not include further significant details, the document states, in part to "protect the identities of those involved."

She has a point. If we didn’t have such a corrupt president, she could be spending time on lawmaking. Now we are wasting time and energy trying to slow down the damage that he and his administration is doing.

"The European Union has launched its latest Sentinel Earth observation spacecraft.

Sentinel-3b is a multipurpose satellite, but will concentrate much of its work over the oceans, monitoring their behaviour and health.

The spacecraft went up on a converted intercontinental ballistic missile from Russia's Plesetsk Cosmodrome.

It will join an identical platform, Sentinel-3a, which was sent into orbit two years ago.

This is now the seventh satellite the EU has lofted in its ambitious Copernicus programme, which seeks to put the biggest volume of Earth observation data ever acquired into the hands of policymakers, scientists, businesses and the general public".

"Serpentine Fire"

The Milkyway Core rises over Serpentine Dam, Western Australia. I had been to Serpentine Dam about a year ago, but I can't recall so much light pollution on the eastern horizon. At first I thought it was a car headlight, but no it stayed constant throughout the shoot. Whilst not my first choice (I had driven to Mt Helena thinking that maybe there was a good view east, but there's not), Serpentine does allow you access along its length at night time unlike other dams in the area. However, you are prohibited from leaving the road / walkway which meant that despite wanting to capture more view of the lake and the galaxy reflection in its water, I was unable to due to the lip of the dam wall obscuring the view.

I used an iOptron sky tracking mount to take this 2 x 3 panel mosaic. A Canon EOS6d (modified) was used through a Canon 50mm f/1.2 lens stopped down to f/3.2. All camera and lens settings were kept the same for all panels, and all shots were taken one immediately after the other. The iOptron tracking mount was used for the sky and turned off for the foreground panels. Stitching in PTGui, colour balance and background neutralisation in Pixinsight, noise reduction, saturation and some brightness / contrast adjustment in Photoshop. Details below.

Enjoy,
Will Vrbasso.

Pink Moon Rising - April's Stunning Full Moon

The April Pink Moon 2018 will rise this month in a stunning display of lunar showmanship. But when will the Pink Moon rise and what is the best time to see it in the sky?

The April full moon, known as the Pink Moon, will rise towards the end of the month between Sunday April 29 and Monday April 30 – depending on where you live.

Skygazers across Europe will have a chance to see the full moon peak an hour after midnight on April 30. In the US, the full moon will appear a few hours earlier on Sunday.

In Europe the Pink Moon will peak at 12.58am UTC (1.58am BST), whereas in eastern US the moon will peak at 8.58pm EDT on Sunday.

In London, the moon will begin to rise over the horizon at 8.47pm BST, rising at 111º.

The moon will then set the following Tuesday at 6.43am BST.

What is the Pink Moon?
Unfortunately the moon will not turn a bright pink colour at the end of the month, but the full moon will be spectacular on its own.

According to Royal Observatory Greenwich, the April full moon derives its names from a species of pink early blooming wildflower, observed by Northern Native Americans.

The Old Farmer’s Almanac says this flower is the wild ground phlox, or the “moss pink”.

The tiny flowering plant is characterised by its various shades of rich pink, is native to North America and blooms in the spring.

In other cultures, the April moon is also known as the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon or the Fish Moon.

From 2016:

Donald Trump admitted to using aliases in the past during an interview on Wednesday with late-night talkshow host Jimmy Kimmel.

Less than two weeks after denying that he ever pretended to be a publicist named John Miller or John Barron in promoting his business affairs with reporters, Trump admitted on Wednesday that “over the years I have used aliases”. He added “I used the name Barron” and explained that was the inspiration for the name of his youngest son, Barron Trump.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/may/26/donald-trump-publicist-alias-jimmy-kimmel-live

I’m not sure how Barron will feel being essentially named after one of the aliases that Trump used to toot his own horn anonymously.
