I couldn’t see the eclipse from where I am. this is a lovely series of photos!
it was cloudy! grr! Washington, sometimes you do me dirty.
What you are looking at here is a slice of the Fukang Meteorite. The rare meteorite was discovered in 2000, in the Gobi Desert in China’s Xinjiang Province.
It is a pallasite; a type of iron meteorite, quite rare, made out of large olivine crystals in an iron-nickel matrix. Olivine is a magnesium iron silicate, quite common in our planet’s subsurface, but which weathers fast when exposed to the surface.
Pallasites are extremely rare, even among meteorites (only about 1% of all meteorites are this type) and they are by far the most beautiful. Slices from the Fukang mass, as in this photo, are reminiscent of stained glass windows, crafted in the solar system.

holy fukang shit
the lunar eclipse condensed to 3 seconds, for those of you who had clouds or are in a hurry
Ashol-Pan is perhaps the only huntress using Golden Eagles.
A new religious statue in the town of Davidson, N.C., is unlike anything you might see in church.
The statue depicts Jesus as a vagrant sleeping on a park bench. St. Alban’s Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes.
Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.
The reaction was immediate. Some loved it; some didn’t.
"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."
That’s right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.
"ooh! a poor person in need of help! i better make sure they get arrested!" to me, that’s the issue that’s most troubling. Apart from that, the statue, and the idea behind it, is one of the parts of Christianity that even a grouchy atheist like me has to admire…
