Astronomy on Tap


I was classified as a troublemaker in elementary school. I believed I was being a normal little hell raiser but my teachers saw it the other way. In the third grade my teacher Miss Coghlin (I’ll never forget her name) handed out an assignment. Each table (9) was given a planet to write about. Well Aaron sat away from all the tables in school because he was such a hellraiser. The teacher decided to give me all nine of the planets to do research on. Sure as shit I started to really like Astronomy and stay up to date with what is going on in space. It’s a little secret I try keeping to myself.

Santa Barbara has a group called Astronomy on Tap and they give a presentations at the bar (Like the photo) Being the nerds we are Tara and I decided to attend one of the events and we had a fun night.

We heard from Emanuele Paolo from UCSB on How to wake up a monster. He talked about Supermassive black holes, galaxy crashes. Tim Lister on New Horizons: Pluto to Ultima Thule. Tim Lister is apart of Las Cumbres Observatory in Santa Barbara too.

I added them as a group on my Facebook page and decided I’ll keep attending when I can.

Worried mind like a camera lens
With no clarity left for the picture
Filter out what I want to forget
Wipe away all the names and the faces

I should have listened to you when you said
"Nothing will make this easier"
I should have listened to you when you said
"Running won't get you away from this"
It follows wherever I go
It follows wherever I go - Tigers Jaw

I'll keep on

Oh these hands are tired
Oh this heart is tired
Oh this soul is tired
But I'll keep on
I'll keep on
I'll keep on

Faith is something I am not accustomed to
Trusting other people's something I don't really love to do
I've never been a fan of it, I act tougher
Really my shoulders they ain't built for this and I don't have nothing - NF
