Earth-Centered Events

Today is “just” some photos for you of the Earth-Centered events that have happened over the last week. First, Earth Hour [1] just finished here in Seattle – so a pretty before-and-after of Pacific Science Center [2] and the Space Needle. (Click to get the full-resolution versions).

Equinox Sunset

I haven’t had a chance to tell you how fun the West Seattle 2010 Spring Equinox Sunset Viewing at Solstice Park was. Unfortunately, we didn’t see the Sun … remember, this is Seattle. If you schedule a sun-dependent event, it will be cloudy. Anyway, we had 30-40 folks show up, and had a good time anyway. Greg posted a nice piece [5] over at the Seattle Astronomy Examiner about it.
