The Mars2020 Perseverance Rover has successfully landed on Mars at Jezero Crater.
The HotWheels version has successfully landed in my connection of space toys.
It's the same mold as the previously released Curiosity rover. The wheels are cast in a different color, and the card details are obviously updated.

Long time, no tumbling. Still alive and ticking. Here鈥檚 an astro-image grab from this evening using the Celestron Nexstar Evolution 6 and Canon Rebel as prime focus. A single frame image. Too dang cold to work harder to capture enough for stacking.

Tinkering with the new Celestron NexYZ phone clamp. Looks like a usability upgrade from the less adjustable one I've been using.

Images captured on the 49th Anniversary of the Landing of Apollo 11 on the Sea of Tranquility. Taken with a Celestron 127EQ with 17mm eyepiece. Used a grey filter and an HTC1 clamped to the eyepiece.

This photo commemorates John Young鈥檚 induction into the Astronaut Hall of Fame in 1982. It hangs at the New Mexico Museum of Space History in Alamogardo. It saddens me to hear that John Young passed away on January 5th, 2018. He was a Gemini, Apollo, and Shuttle astronaut. A master of many space vehicles.

A brassy lass that learned to stick up for herself and others. That goes equally, but differently, for Leia and Carrie. Try not to judge me for having a slave Leia action figure playset.

Catapulted into fame. Idolized by legions of fans. Overcame many personal challenges to become a spokesperson and role model for others that struggle. My kind of royalty. Rest in Peace, Carrie.

John Glenn, the first American astronaut to orbit the Earth, died on Dec. 8, 2016. He was 95.
Glenn was a military man who flew 149 combat missions during the Korean War. In 1959, the year he posed for this portrait in a Mercury program pressure suit and helmet, he was announced as one of NASA鈥檚 original seven astronauts.
