The Way to The Milky Way
This panorama shows The Milky Way arching over a little-traveled highway in the high desert of central Oregon, near Millican Valley. The densest part of The Milky Way, the central region of our spiral galaxy (some 27,000 light years away), is at far right. The bright star at top center is Vega. Note that the red glow at left (north) is the aurora borealis. Panorama consists of 14 photos taken on April 16, 2015. Millican Valley, Oregon Coordinates: 44.036158, -120.917347

+Matthew J Price I agree with it being 94% but I think using words versus acronyms would be a much better approach. Words have much more emotional baggage if you will than acronyms. This is promising.

The Cygnus Black Hole --"Fires Up In An Outburst of High-Energy Light"

NASA's Swift satellite detected a rising tide of high-energy X-rays from the constellation Cygnus on June 15, just before 2:32 p.m. EDT. About 10 minutes later, the Japanese experiment on the International Space Station called the Monitor of All-sky X-ray Image (MAXI) also picked up the flare.

The outburst came from V404 Cygni, a binary system located about 8,000 light-years away that contains a black hole. Every couple of decades the black hole fires up in an outburst of high-energy light, becoming an X-ray nova. Until the Swift detection, it had been slumbering since 1989.

Venus - Jupiter Conjunction (annotated).

This is a three-layered, telescopic image of the conjunction from last night. The base layer was shot using the Celestron Telescopes CPC 800 scope and Canon Australia 600D DSLR, and provided an "overview" (or perhaps "blueprint") of the event for accurate spacing and relative size of the planets.

On top of that are two layers, one for each of the planets, shot using the same telescope, and the ZWO Astronomy Cameras ASI 120MM-S monochrome planetary camera. With some selective adjustments, I was able to brighten up the Galilean moons of Jupiter enough to make them visible, while keeping the planet from blowing out.

Finally I added some annotations to identify the visible objects, and the distances of the planets from Earth (to the nearest million kilometers) at the time the image was taken.

This view is similar to that which can be seen through the eyepiece of a telescope at moderate power - though of course Jupiter has colour (and is perhaps a touch dimmer) through the eyepiece :-)

∴ Putting your big idea into motion™
How are you today? Feeling good?  Feeling down?
Excellent! You came to the right place.  Living in this very moment.


Cycles are natural. If your situation is not what you had hoped, it's bound to improve. If it's currently great, than you will want faithful friends around when it becomes less than you hoped. Maybe you will decide that the situation doesn't matter, that you can be happy no matter what. That is the better way in my opinion. This idea may be hard to swallow at times, but it has been my experience, for whatever that is worth to you.  

My mission in life: Help others create and adapt to change for the better カイゼン
I am passionate about helping everyone leverage the dynamic nature of their world to grow in every aspect. My reward is to see them make an impact that energizes them and the lives of others.
