Cosmic Star Event

JUST-in from>


What are the odds? On Tuesday, Feb. 24th, Saturn and Comet Lulin will converge in the constellation Leo only 2 degrees apart.

Oh, and the Moon will be New,… Continue

Facebook, Ning & the www

I continue to enjoy the Community Blog of Albuquerque, the Duke City Fix. I have started several groups and added some pictures and done what I could to promote the web as I enjoy it.
