This is cool. On the morning of February 24th 2009, a green comet known as Lulin may become visible to the naked eye. The Nasa website contains three dates that track the comment leading up to February 24th as well as sky maps.
Feb. 24th: Closest approach! On this special morning, Lulin will lie just a few degrees from Saturn in the constellation Leo. Saturn is obvious to the unaided eye, and Lulin could be as well. If this doesn’t draw you out of bed, nothing will.
Will you be out looking for Lulin on the morning of Feb 24th? I’ll try to get out and see it myself. Just hope the weather cooperates.
As reported by Mashable Greenvoice has launched a new activism community for those who love to live green. The first thing you’ll notice is the page layout and design, which I personally feel is excellent. Greenvoice is yet another platform for people to share, collaborate, communicate and voice opinions on issues related to living green.
Those who participate in the community are known as Greenvoicers, who can take as active or inactive role in the site as they wish.
Greenvoice allows users to create Campaigns. Users of Greenvoice are able to donate towards these campaigns as they wish. One thing worth noting is that the campaigns are in POUNDS and not dollars. Some of the campaigns that have already started include, Excess Packaging For Software, Free Papers, Bottled Water, Intensive Pig Farming and more.
There are also sections to write appeals or actions to oppose or support a particular campaign, a section to display videos, and each campaign has a slew of bookmarking options. These act as wikis of sorts, and Greenvoice users can contribute some information to a certain degree, whether you’re a member of the campaign or not.
Check out Greenvoice if you feel your up to the challenge of making a positive impact on the world.
