Letter to Yourself in the Future
Have you set goals for 2022? Want to make some accountability? Why not write a letter to your future self?
The website futureme.org lets you create emails that will be sent to you in the future. You can set the date to be 1 year, 3 years, 5 years or more.
The site has been around for 20-years. So it's not going anyplace - certainly worth a simple letter so say "Hi!"
Good news is the service is free!
Way back in 2002, we had a crazy idea that it would be fun to get a surprise letter from the past. So we spent a couple of weekends making FutureMe. Here's what the original version of FutureMe looked like!. We told some friends...who told some of their friends...and so on...and now many, many millions of letters have been written to the future. Some of these letters have been delivered from the past, and many more are still time-traveling into the future.
NightSky this Month
The Boston Museum of Science puts out a handy graphic of what is in the night sky over New England. This is useful to look at when you are about to venture on a nighttime journey - such as walking the dog.
If you are not in New England, you can check out if your local science museum has a similar guide. The ASTC Travel Passport Program at the Association of Science and Technology Centers is a useful reference to find your local science museum.
Note: This link will always display the latest night-sky graphic.
Interactive Night Sky
Do you walk the dog at night and look up at the night sky? Maybe you like to sit on the porch and look up. Ever wonder what's in the night sky right when you look up?
Sky & Telescope can help. They built an Interactive Night Sky that shows you - at any given point - what is in the night sky.
What's nice is that you can change the date picker to be anytime - even in the past! You can see the night sky the day you were born.
Powered by Heavens Above, our interactive viewer charts the night sky as seen by eye. The map includes the Moon, stars brighter than magnitude 5, the five bright planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn), and deep-sky objects that can be seen without the use of optical aid.
