Asteroid Ryugu

Finally Hayabusa (= Falcon in Japanese) 2 has arrived Asteroid Ryugu after 1302 days journey. See today’s JAXA  announcement. Hayabusa 1 has come eventually back to the earth after almost-give-up situations with various engine troubles. But #2 looks all done as designed and planned.

I hope Hayabusa 2 can bring more samples back to the earth again and show us something unknown or new on asteroids. Congratulations, JAXA! Really great efforts.

I wish to test a new astro DSLR filter ASAP. But unfortunately I’m annoyed by the marine layer and the moon these nights. It’s a blue sky daytime every day though……
