Daisy's device is typing for her, it's careening, not careering towards the edge of the galaxy. Just sayin.

888.888... miles per second.
That's 0.477 percent of the speed of light.
Just to point out it's fast but to get real astonishing time dilation matter needs to be closer to 70% plus of the speed of light.
Still the time delta between us and orbiting GPS satellite is enough to throw off GPS by a hundred miles and more as error accumulates, and they are significantly slower.
It takes an algorithm to factor in the Lotentz transformation for time dilation to adjust for relativity for accurate GPS.
We still don't want anything like that anywhere near our solar system.

Still it would take over200,000 years to get near us if it's headed our way

@bobwjr We see black holes cruising at insane speeds as well, like ejected from the galactic core by a close brush with the super massive monster Sagittarius A, but not close enough to feed it, just close enough to get hurled out of the Galaxy at relativistic speeds.

Wow

Way (not cool) hot, way fast, way, way away 🙂

👋 goodbye even?

But imagine it hitting earth or sun?

Posted by starwatcher-alI missed the early phases of the eclipse but the clouds mostly left during totality. All in all a great eclipse. Next one is Nov. 8-22
