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
<https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2019-July/092299.html>".

Last week there were at least two notable anniversaries in space
exploration.
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
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/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
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comet_Hale%E2%80%93Bopp>.

I enjoy looking at English Wikipedia featured pictures, including these
subcategories of space featured pictures:
* Looking out
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Featured_pictures/Space/Looking_out>
* Understanding
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Featured_pictures/Space/Understanding>
* Getting there
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Featured_pictures/Space/Getting_there>
* Looking back
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Featured_pictures/Space/Looking_back>
* Panorama
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Featured_pictures/Space/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
stars
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Cosmic_Fireball_Falling_Over_ALMA.jpg>,
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
<https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Frase_de_Neil_Armstrong.ogg>."

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
language
