I started in photography 10 years ago on a whim and many paychecks worth of equipment later I am still shooting and trying to pass along the little I know to others so they can enjoy their photography more.

The eggs from this chicken may form into stars. The above pictured emission nebula, cataloged as IC 2944, is called the Running Chicken Nebula for the shape of its greater appearance. The image was taken recently from Siding Spring Observatory in Australia and presented in scientifically assigned colors. Seen near the center of the image are small, dark molecular clouds rich in obscuring cosmic dust. Called Thackeray's Globules for their discoverer, these "eggs" are potential sites for the gravitational condensation of new stars, although their fates are uncertain as they are also being rapidly eroded away by the intense radiation from nearby young stars. Together with patchy glowing gas and complex regions of reflecting dust, these massive and energetic stars form the open cluster Collinder 249. This gorgeous skyscape spans about 70 light-years at the nebula's estimated 6,000 light-year distance.
Here are a couple quotes:
SH: Oh my god.
RM: It is an amazing machine. You start to climb up through Mach 1, and it's a big punch with a lot of air resistance. What we'd typically do is climb up, put the nose down just before Mach 1, and then lift back up and punch through it all the way to Mach 3.
SH: And this whole time, the pilot just wasn't on the gas and stick: you were actually changing the shape of the engine itself in order to get more thrust out of the engine.
THERE'S A LOT OF STUFF IN THE JOB THAT ISN'T IN THE SHINY BROCHURE.
RM: That's right. Because the faster you went, the more ram thrust you got, which burns less fuel. So you did have to go faster to burn less fuel. Like I said, you had to unlearn everything you knew about other aircraft.

Hands down the coolest plane I have ever seen fly at an airshow....and my all time favorite plane...
We made a high speed run on the Nimitz in the 80's when she was a Med Cruise ship. I am not supposed to say how fast so I wont. I will say I would not have believed it had I not seen it myself.
FYI - this does not mean Daytime running lights, and Auto headlights do not always turn on your headlights when you are in rain during the day...
