comment Why can't I see Mars clearly?
@CraigBob I converted this to a comment as answers should be restricted to just that, answering the question. As for where you guys might want to talk further Astronomy Chat may be the best place, we dont have a PM system on stack exchange sites. It does require 50 rep to get into the chat room however

comment Why don't planets and asteroids have (cometary) tails?
On review, seems i turned it in to 'not a sentence' anyway, quickly applied another edit, apologies for that, in either case, the addition of sources would still increase the usefulness of this as an answer. Thanks again

comment Why do Jovian moons fade when transiting Jupiter's shadow?
Hey there and thanks for the answer, it's great you've provided some sources for this but would you be able to link to any others for the umbra/preumbra information? Wikipedia is rather subject to change, not to mention that article itself has only 2 sources, one of which is broken! Thanks in advance

comment Why don't planets and asteroids have (cometary) tails?
Hi, i made a few simple edits just to make it a little easier to read, hope you dont mind. Do you have any sources to back up your answer? for example where does the information for all of steps 1 through 4 come from? If you can provide sources then this answer becomes much much better. Thanks in advance!

comment Would it be possible to calculate the expected frequency of impact craters of all sizes on Earth
Hi Marc, Rather than just linking to the article (which is subject to being lost or changed over time) might you be able to summarize its main points here in your answer? It would really help improve your answer! Thanks in advance
