Kepler (the telescope, not the long-dead astronomer) just found the first multi-planet system that orbits a multi-star system. Now would be the appropriate time to invoke the Tatooine references.

This reminds us not only are there just a ton of “habitable zone” planets, but that they also orbit multiple types of star systems. You name a star system, we can probably put a planet around it.

Think about this: As habitable zone planets become more and more numerous, what will we use as a more useful indicator of whether they could harbor life? Because just being in the right place is not enough.

Photographer Stephen Wilkes creates remarkable images of night and day at once by setting up his camera to take pictures of a single scene over and over for 15 hours. He then blends the images to get this time-defying effect.

This could be an excellent creative writing prompt/ or prompt for a small vocaublary based project. Very inspiring! :)

This has led to some really interesting pieces. I’ve used it twice with two incredibly different outcomes.

close to the town of Eastbourne in the county of East Sussex, immediately east of the Seven Sisters. The cliff there is the highest chalk sea cliff in Britain.
