A partially eclipsed setting Sun If you look closely, you will see something quite unusual about this setting Sun. There are birds flying to the Sun’s left, but that's not so unusual. A dark sea covers the Sun’s bottom, and dark clouds cover parts of the middle, but they are also not very unusual. More unusual is the occulted piece at the top right. And that’s no occulting cloud – that's the Moon. Yesterday the Moon moved in front of part of the Sun as visible from Austr...

Did Airbus make a brand new stretched version of its Airbus A300 using Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines! Nah! It’s Lufthansa’s Airbus A330-300 that clipped a United Express Jet at Washington-Dulles International Airport! As you can see, the winglet is still missing, making it look like an A300! :D

spytap: In another universe, there’s a version of me that either never developed, or got over his issues with authority, and fulfilled his childhood dream of becoming a fighter pilot.
