    First few pictures I took yesterday with my old telescope I've got years ago: First is Jupiter. You can see some cloud bands of you look closely Saturn. A bit blurry, but the rings are clearly visible:

    I guess they do it this way too, for the people who don't have MH / Mission Builder. It's fun nevertheless

    KSP Challenge: Stylish Decay!

    Here is my entry: No fancy music or editing, just the important things At 120% entry heat Was really hard to get Jeb not exploding all the time, that's why I needed to slow him down enough ( shielding by a heatshield or bay doesn't work)

    I think the light, which comes from the camera, reflected from the foil at the top of the engine

    (Maybe) Supernova found

    probably this. The normal surface reflections shouldn't be bright enough in 37k km wow, thanks for putting it clear guys and I know more about supernovas , nice

    (Maybe) Supernova found

    ok, that would explain alot. But there is one last thing unclear to me: when it's at it's apogee, and illuminated, how does it not reflect light anymore after this three minutes? At this hight there should be enough light...
