Build your own Cosmic Gun, or custom cosmic ray detector.  Cosmic Gun, the device art, is an amateur, low-cost astronomy project that enables the general public to be connected momentarily with cosmic rays coming from outside the Solar System.

A comment from another blogger about an item of mine containing another bit of poetry led me to put up this astronomy-inspired poem, by the former Poet Laureate John Masefield. It’s from a cycle called Lollingdown Downs, and is actually the 12th poem in the sequence. I hope you like it.

I could not sleep for thinking of the sky,

The unending sky, with all its million suns

Which turn their planets everlastingly

In nothing, where the fire-haired comet runs.
