NGC 6357: Cathedral to Massive Stars 
Image Credit: NASA, ESA 

Explanation: How massive can a normal star be? Estimates made from distance, brightness and standard solar models had given one star in the open cluster Pismis 24 over 200 times the mass of our Sun, nearly making it the record holder. This star is the brightest object located just above the gas front in the above image. Close inspection of images taken with the Hubble Space Telescope, however, have shown that Pismis 24-1 derives its brilliant luminositynot from a single star but from three at least. Component stars would still remain near 100 solar masses, making them among the more massive stars currently on record. Toward the bottom of the image, stars are still forming in the associated emission nebula NGC 6357. Appearing perhaps like aGothic cathedral, energetic stars near the center appear to be breaking out and illuminating a spectacular cocoon.

Can someone tell me a good software to burn MP4's to bluray? I have tried AVCHD but it wont read my files for some reason. I have tried Freemake but it crashes when it tries to burn.

I always used to use Nero burning Rom when I burned movies, they weren't bluray though. I loved that software.

I am having a very hard time with polar alignment. I can see Polaris with my eye but when I look through a polar scope I am having a hard time identifying it. Any tips or am I just dumb lol

Before I was just eyeing Polaris and now trying to use the polar scope. Hopefully I will have clear skies tomorrow and give it another go

Amazing! Food is really really good and a lot to choose from. You do pay a hefty price but I would say it's definitely worth it.

Pros: Buffet is amazing! There's little reason to eat anywhere else. Tournament of kings is a good little event to go to. It's rather funny, interesting, and entertaining. Good shops in the hotel itself. Convenient to travel to the airport. Cons: Room was not clean. Shower wasn't clean, bathroom floor had blood on it, there was pee all over the toilet, and there was hair on the towels. Check-in time is rather long as their are huge lines. Conclusion: Would I go back? Not sure. We had a beautiful view of the Luxor as we had one of the more expensive rooms with a view of the strip. Loved the location of the hotel. The thing that really turned me off is the lack of a clean room. For the amount of money you spend your get a nice room you should expect at the minimum that you would have a clean room.

Very nice new location. The store is much more spacious and modern than the previous location and is a pleasure to shop in. Biggest disadvantage is that it's located on a road which is not built to properly channel the kind of traffic store like this will have moving forward.

Clean rooms with a nice view of the city. Stayed here for the Sigur Ros concert and was a great stay. Rooms are clean and the breakfast is served hot with a good amount of options. The best thing is how close you are to the city but far away that traffic is not such a major issue. Will definitely come back.

Great food and good service. Location is clean and the food is delicious. Salmon kabob and shrimp kabob are very good.

Went here for the Sigur Ros concert. This venue is clearly where you would see a play and I can see it being great for that. As I went for a rock concert the ability to be so close to the stage is amazing. Sound was on point although there were some technical issues in the beginning. Would defiantly come back.

Great food Went here recently on a trip and was worth the detour. Food here is great, chips and salsa was on point with its spice, and the chimi was the best I've had.
