Spacey Sunday




You've probably already seen these fantastic photos, but just in case you haven't, look for the comet Swan toward the northwestern horizon in the early evening. They say you can see it without a telescope.

From NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope we get to see the shock wave from an exploded star in Cassiopeia!

I haven't seen these. How absolutely defining of the word "surreal" these photos are especially the psychadelic one. LOL

Now I'm going back to read about the little kids.
