If you like ‘Agatha Christie‘ you will love this — and it outdoes Agatha. One can kind of say modern-day Agatha, with more cleverness.

Very cute. Lavishly produced. Lots of famous faces. Very clever.

Highly recommended. I was mesmerized. Beautiful settings. WOW.

3 Comets, Supposedly Unrelated, All Rounded The Sun On August 5, 2020, Per NASA/ESA SOHO.

We, as yet, know very little about these three, supposedly unrelated, comets that rounded the Sun fairly close together.

Given their proximity one would normally think that they were 3 fragments from the same parent comet. Current consensus, though only based on minimal study, is that they are NOT fragments. Basically unrelated. Strange, but can happen.

Very small. Went undetected until spotted, after the fact, on SOHO images.

Have NOT been given MPC designations as yet because we don’t have enough observational data.

Just a heads up.

‘Portland Head Lighthouse’, in ‘Fort Williams’, ‘Cape Elizabeth‘, Maine. Last Wednesday, August 12, 2020. Last picture I took. SMILE.

Second visit to this park in two weeks. I spent about 2-hours on this last visit. Have only scratched the surface so far. Absolutely amazing place. Hard to beat for scenery. Blinking beautiful lighthouse.

Mid-August And 2020 Fall Foliage Is Starting To Appear In Central New Hampshire.

Kind of incongruous in that it has been a NOTICEABLY hot Summer with multiple weeks of non-stop over 80F days. So much so that even I might have to concede ‘Global Warming‘.

But, some nights have been cool, i.e., low 60Fs (if not slightly cooler). That will do it.

I hear the same is happening in Wisconsin.

Could prove to be an interesting Fall.

I will, of course, keep you posted.
