I love stargazing and I am bit of an astronomy nerd too. I recently was reading this article that listed 10 places in North Carolina that are the best places to stargaze. I have to agree as I’ve visited a couple of those places listed and those areas are great for stargazing.
I love anything to do with Astronomy, Stars, Space, Planets, etc. The other day a friend introduced me to 100,000 Stars, which is an interactive visualization of the stellar neighborhood created for the Google Chrome web browser. I really have spent hours exploring all the different places in our universe. It’s really a cool interactive website that I definitely recommend if you like Astronomy as much as I do.
Today is Blog Action Day. It happens every year on Oct. 15, it’s an event that unites bloggers worldwide, to spread the word about a particular issue. This year’s it’s about Climate Change.
Climate Change is part of Global Warming and it’s defiantly effecting our environment. They are many ways you can do your part and help change our environment. Just some of them are:
- Bike or Walk to work
- Use Green Products
- Use CFLs
- Use Energy Star products
- buy a fuel-efficient car
- know your carbon foot print & try to reduce it
- eat more organic & local grown veggies & fruits
The list goes on what you can do to help with the environment, I do everything I can like recycling, telecommuting, composting, saving rain water to use to water the plants, use cfls, have a fuel-efficient car, eat only organic & locally grown veggies, using, Energy Star products, shutdown my computer or other appliances when they are not in use, keeping the heat turn down or not using heating/AC at all. (don’t mind wearing a hoodie around the house or keeping the windows open in the spring, fall or winter). etc.
You don’t have to do everything I do or mentioned here, but if everyone just did a little something like using CFL light bulbs, carpool or even recycle, it would help out in a big way.
