Fresh from the land down under Ian Musgrave presents the Antipodian edition of the Carnival of Space. It’s a strange experience, and my caffeine-addled morning brain had a hard job understanding what was going on. But why are all the pictures are upside down? I pondered for a few seconds… Ah, now I get it, Ian lives in Australia! Fortunately I didn’t embarrass myself by sending him a message, advertising my sleep-deprived state. This got me thinking, if I host the Carnival, do I need to tilt all the images 56°… left? I might just do that next time and confuse Mr Musgrave with my SoCal edition of the Carnival… or, perhaps, I need to get back to bed…

So, enough of the rambling, get over to Astroblog for a superb Carnival, with loads of superb posts from the world of space blogging!
