    Astronomy pic of the day for NASA, amazing. I’ve shared the link and yours from YouTube, Mike. By the way, where’d you get that hat. Is it Australian? Would love to get one just ragged enough like your own. You wouldn’t have a 7 3/8 size head would you?

    • Thanks, Tim-
      I appreciate the compliments. About the hat… it’s called Real Deal Brazil, and you can get it from that company. They recycle old tarps which cover trucks carrying freight between Northern and Southern Brazil. http://realdealbrazil.com/the-real-deal.php It comes in two sizes, and mine’s a medium. I tried on the small and it was too tight. Maybe it had something to do with my ego at the time!
