I think you are looking at Jupiter because it has really been bright the past few nights, along with the full moon.

I found PBS.org and Hubble-site.org before finding Neave again.

We've all seen high speed photography. The droplets. The bullet through the apple. The popped balloon.

This guy combines two of them.

Apparently Gromitspapa's link expired, since leenco12 tried it last night.

For all you "easterners" here is a link to an Oregon cultural icon.

Grant McOmie started doing his "Grant's Getaways" several years ago on Oregon Public Broadcasting.
His weekly TV segments were 10 - 20 min long and covered all kinds of places, people and strange things in Oregon.
Once you hear his voice, you'll recognize it forever.

There was almost a public up-rising back in 2008 (?) when Grant and OPB came to a parting-of-the-ways.
He was so popular and a major fund-raiser for public broadcasting.

Now (Hooray !!!) Grant's Getaways are being broadcast again,
but on the local TV (KGW), and many segments are available,
but the more recent are usually very short (2 - 3 min)

To know what Oregon is really like, I invite you to these links.

Enjoy
