I apologize for the lateness of this week's email.

I would like to highlight the recognition of the Dehalvi Wikimedia
Community User Group
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Dehalvi_Wikimedia_User_Group> and Wikimedia
Community User Group Math
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Community_User_Group_Math>. (I
wish that I could translate this email's subject line into Urdu.
Regrettably, I have doubts regarding the automated translation. I would be
appreciative if anyone would like to share a manual translation of the
subject line into Urdu.)

I thought that this thread on Wikitech-l was interesting: "Difference
between #goal and #epic

Last week there were at least two notable anniversaries in space
1. 20 July 1969 was the date that astronauts on the Apollo 11
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apollo_11> spaceflight landed on Earth's moon
2. 23 July 1995 was when two astronomers, one of them being an amateur
astronomer <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amateur_astronomer>, first
discovered Comet Hale–Bopp

I enjoy looking at English Wikipedia featured pictures, including these
subcategories of space featured pictures:
* Looking out
* Understanding
* Getting there
* Looking back
* Panorama

My guess is that many of us have looked up at the sky at night and thought
about the moon, the stars, and the planets. Maybe you have seen shooting
comets like Hale–Bopp, or the Milky Way
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Beneath_the_Milky_Way.jpg>. If you have
the opportunity to try astronomy or night photography
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Astronoomiahuvilised.jpg>, I encourage
you to do so.

I would like to close this email with two quotes.

First, the famous quote by astronaut Neil Armstrong as he first set foot on
the Moon: "That's one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind

Second, a quote by amateur astronomer Thomas Bopp
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Bopp>: " I--I'll never give up
looking at the skies. There's so many beautiful things there. And I love to
share that with people."

What's making you happy this week? You are welcome to comment in any
