Comet C/2013 A1 (Siding Spring) will pass within 139,500 km (86,000 miles) of the surface of Mars at 5:51 tomorrow morning (Monday 20 Oct, Sydney time – or 19 October at 18:51 UTC). This means Comet Siding Spring will pass 10 times closer to Mars than any (recorded) comet has flown by Earth! But it will be traveling at 50 km/s which is too fast to be captured by Mars’s gravitational pull.

Up and out in the dark, it’s a normal occurrence now. The ground was wet but dried up after the sun began to break through the clouds.
Work was a bit slow, still. Not much happening on the issue I’m working on, slow.
It’s Tuesday and the Movie Edge of Tomorrow, they oppositely renamed the movie to something like: Live, Die, Repeat. Whatever. Brian picked up the BlueRay for me.
I setup the Vixen 100mm OT and took some photos of the moon with the Df and then added the 2X converter and got a bit closer. Brian tried to give me some crap about not being able to focus on the trees about 300 yards away and then on the moon without having some sort of extra tube more than I already had.
Had a few beers and watched the movie with Brian upstairs. The sky cleared up but then about 9:30 the clouds began to roll in again.
Hoping the sky is good for the eclipse in the morning.

A total lunar eclipse occurs October 8, 2014. For those in the Americas, remember this is the night that stars on Tuesday, October 7, but the eclipse will be after midnight, so on October 8.

Sunny and clear in the am. Then it clouded up in the pm.
Didn’t get much accomplished today @ work, the upload and then DB insert all fail nicely in my VM.
Cooked up some wantons for dinner and then watched some TV. Watched the Knick
on Cinemax with Clive Owen. Eve Hewson
also is now his “Love” interest and plays a young nurse @ the Knick. Eve is the daughter of Bono from U2. Juliet Rylance
plays a rich chick who helps out @ the Knick and plays an interesting racial part, as she starts seeing a black doctor she knew as a child and got hired @ the Knick. Both of these lovely ladies have had a few very steamy scenes in the series.
Eve Hewson, that look
Drank a few beers and thought about setting up the telescope to get some photos of the almost full moon. I got as far as getting the scope opened up and then getting the prime focus adapter for the camera and then the clouds just seemed to be covering the moon mostly so I lost interest.
This beer might need no introduction. Sierra Nevada’s Narwhal Imperial Stout was released two years ago this month.
Since then, a few kegs of Barrel Aged Narwhal have made slime appearances.
Much like Barrel Aged Bigfoot, Narwhal Imperial Stout was will release in bottles later this month. Aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels.
This beer is black as midnight and complex with layers of roasted malt flavor offering notes of espresso and dark chocolate and a touch of vanilla and honey from the barrels.

Dessert is best poured. And the brewers at Perennial agree. So we dreamt up a beer that would bering together chocolate sweetness, Belgian yeast, deeply roasted malts and just the right shake of salt to pour a creamy stout worth of a cherry on top.
New Belgium/Perennial Salted Belgian Chocolate Stout is available in 22oz bombers and draft for a limited time.
Style: Belgian-Style Imperial Stout (w/ Chocolate, Salt)

…Ideally, you’ll want to cellar the beer up to-or beyond-the Enjoy After date to help it reach its full evolutionary potential. At that point, some facets of the Brett characteristics will have mellowed, while others will have become more profound; it all matures into a fascinating and delicious culmination. Individual results will vary…and that’s both the beauty and the intent behind this beer.

Things aren’t always what they seem, but not all deception is devious. Some illusions and misnomers lead to life’s most delightful surprises. Case in point—this beer, the yang to the yin that is the black India pale ale. Once revolutionary for its onyx appearance, it is now an accepted and beloved member of the India pale ale family tree. Thus we took the spirit of a dark beer—the time-honored stout—and applied a similar science of thought, brewing it to be golden-hued. That is what this experimental series and its latest creation are all about. Cocoa and coffee beans impart roastiness sans darkening to this brew, while flaked oats provide an enveloping mouthfeel. The result is a stout that looks more like a blonde, but is a raven beauty at heart.
