Tonight's Sky: April 2014

Shownotes

It's a good month for eclipses. Lucky viewers will see a total lunar eclipse or a partial solar eclipse.

I wish some of these events were earlier in the evening so I could keep my son up to see them.

Believing when there is no compelling evidence is a mistake.  The idea is to withhold belief until there is compelling evidence and if the universe does not comply with our predispositions, okay, then we have the wrenching obligation to accommodate to the way the universe really is.  - Carl Sagan

Who is more humble, the scientist who looks at the universe with an open mind and accepts whatever the universe has to teach us or somebody who says everything in this book should be considered the literal truth and never mind the fallibility of the human beings involved in the writing of this legend - Carl Sagan
