Flight recorder from Viking 7

Shot from my backyard tonight after work. I titled it after the song I had in my head while shooting. For some reason or another, I always get the same song in my head while shooting space or astronomy related material. Have a listen.


On Friday April the 13th, 2029, Asteroid 2004 MN4 will pass dangerously close to the Earth. Scientists say it will not hit the Earth but many believe we stand a good chance of seeing it hit the moon. 2004 MN4 is 320 meters wide and it has been said that if it hits Earth it could obliterate an area the size of Texas. If it hits the moon, well, it would probably destroy the moon. I heard of this the other day on the news and figured I'd get out and document the moon while it still exists. READ.
