Searching for 'our alien origins'

Found this whilst searching the Net for Astronomy news on the BBC website, interesting stuff if nothing else :wink: In July 2001, a mysterious red rain started falling over a large area of southern India. Locals believed that it foretold the end of the world, though the official explanation was that...

Yes it would i guess the point i am trying to make is from these past Observations there is a direct link to the trend of lack of clear nights and can be atributed too Global warming and thus may give us an idea of ...
