Cool videos

Back in March I linked to a video of the Earth setting behind the moon from Japan's Selene probe. Here is another one of those things that really gets your 'sense of wonder' juices flowing: video (okay, technically an animation of many still images) of the Moon passing in front of the Earth. This was taken from about 50 31 million miles by Nasa's Deep Impact probe, which is all finished with its primary cometary mission and is hanging around the solar system drinking beer and spraying graffiti on asteroids until its next comet turns up.



More details, and an infrared version in which the continents are more visible, at the Nasa site.

And finally...



After tomorrow Dr. Horrible becomes paid download only, so get your fix now.
