I totally forgot about this until yesterday Abozzo reminded me.

Have you seen Stellarium? No?

"Stellarium is a free open source planetarium for your computer. It shows a realistic sky in 3D, just like what you see with the naked eye, binoculars or a telescope.
It is being used in planetarium projectors. Just set your coordinates and go."

Peregrine Falcons

Lisa at 5 Orange Potatoes has posted about her town's Peregrine Falcon web cams, reminding me that my town (Salt Lake City, Utah, in the U.S.) has one as well!
I jetted over there and saw that usually they hatch sometime in the last couple of weeks in April.
Since Peregrine's like high-rises, see if your town has one!
