I'm a tech junkie, a lover of words, and a people person. I support the proliferation and use of the Oxford comma.

Japan is a never ending source of these little, delicate ways to pass the time.
Osaka's Kakomi changes with the seasons and currently has a "tsuyu"-inspired meal that represents raindrops and puddles. ☔

Yellowstone National Park has a Grand Canyon and a waterfall almost twice as tall as Niagara falls.

The Galactic Center in Infrared

The center of our Galaxy is a busy place. In visible light, much of the Galactic Center is obscured by opaque dust. In infrared light, however, dust glows more and obscures less, allowing nearly one million stars to be recorded in the featured photograph. The Galactic Center itself appears on the left and is located about 30,000 light years away towards the constellation of the Archer (Sagittarius). The Galactic Plane of our Milky Way Galaxy, the plane in which the Sun orbits, is identifiable by the dark diagonal dust lane. The absorbing dust grains are created in the atmospheres of cool red-giant stars and grow in molecular clouds. The region directly surrounding the Galactic Center glows brightly in radio and high-energy radiation, and is thought to house a large black hole.

Apollo 8 Liftoff View: December 21, 1968
The Apollo 8 (Spacecraft 103/Saturn 503) space vehicle is launched from Pad A, Launch Complex 39, Kennedy Space Center (KSC), at 7:51 a.m (EST), December 21, 1968. The crew of the Apollo 8 lunar orbit mission were astronauts Frank Borman, commander; James A. Lovell Jr., command module pilot; and William A. Anders, lunar module pilot.

Earth Launch - December 21, 1968
Earth Landing - December 27, 1968

Apollo 8 was the first mission to orbit the moon, making Borman, Anders and Lovell the first humans to see the far side of the moon (except via photographs from unmanned Russian and American spacecraft). They conducted lunar landing site tracking while in orbit for future missions to the moon.

The mission achieved operational experience and tested the Apollo command module systems, including communications, tracking, and life-support, in cislunar space and lunar orbit, and allowed evaluation of crew performance on a lunar orbiting mission. The crew photographed the lunar surface, both far side and near side, obtaining information on topography and landmarks as well as other scientific information necessary for future Apollo landings. All systems operated within allowable parameters and all objectives of the mission were achieved.
