Moon misses Jupiter and we miss the Perseids; New observations of supernovas or unnovas; What escapes from the lunar surface at about 4 grams per square cm per billion years?

Greetings from Palmia Observatory

Well, some of you are probably waiting to spot the Perseid Meteor showers, but they tend to come to late for me, so I have just been watching the Moon move across the sky as if it might just bump into Jupiter.  But of course it just misses it as shown in this Sky Safari Pro screenshot and then moves further and further away.

Time Travel, UFOs and Closed Timelike Curves, The bar (at the hotel) and the center of the galaxy; Dark stars and supermassive black holes; Looking at Jupiter and moons

Greetings from Palmia Observatory

Well after attending the 2019 UFO Symposium, as described in last week's blog post, I had to look up some more of the details of closed time like curves (CTC) and time travel.  Now where better to begin that study than at the Hotel Irvine bar, since that was open at the end of the symposium.
