My fav nebula
 
The Horsehead, Flame and IC434 Nebulae
A much wider view in color covering 3.48 x 2.18 degrees captured over 4 seasons using LRGB + H-Alpha filters showing the immensity of the bright Emission Nebula IC434.
This is a combination of data captured from my backyard observatory in Western Michigan between 2011 and 2014 using QHY9 and QHY11 Mono CCD’s, 5 inch TMB 130 and TMB92 refractors, AT12RC and Takahashi E180 Astrographs, processed with CCDStack, Registar and CS5
 
 
Part of the Orion Molecular Cloud, an immense star forming region very close to earth, The Flame and Horsehead Nebulas offer a glimpse into the process from which stars and their planets are created. The colorfully lit areas are being irradiated by the young stars which have formed in the recent past and as a result, the ionized hydrogen in the clouds glows. The dark regions, on the other hand, are areas of dusty material in the interstellar medium dense enough to obscure the glow from behind. The Horsehead is such an object and from our vantage point on Earth, it bears a striking resemblance to the head of a horse.

The photo, which was released yesterady, is a composite of dozens of images taken in late January by Curiosity's Mars Hand Lens Imager. The mosaic provides a great view of the "Pahrump Hills" outcrop at the base of the huge Mount Sharp.

Finally. Bathroom is complete. Just need a washer for the leaky tap, and hang up the mirror, and done. That only took a month

It's the zombie apocalypse Charlie Brown
Good grief. Charlie Brown has the worst luck. Out of the whole gang he's the only one that got infected and no body even noticed. 6"x9" inks and watercolor on watercolor paper. Asking $60 down from its original price of $125.

Wtf? Looked down at my Galaxy Gear and saw this. I rebooted it by long pressing the power button, but how did I do this while sitting here?

182,000,000 tones of dust? Wowzers!
 
NASA Satellite Tracks Saharan Dust to Amazon in 3D
Satellite Reveals How Much Saharan Dust Feeds Amazon's Plants
Feb. 24, 2015: For the first time, a NASA satellite has quantified in three dimensions how much dust makes the trans-Atlantic journey from the Sahara Desert to the Amazon rainforest. Among this dust is phosphorus, an essential nutrient that acts like a fertilizer, which the Amazon depends on in order to flourish. 

The new dust transport estimates were derived from data collected by a lidar instrument on NASA's Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observation, or CALIPSO, satellite from 2007 though 2013. 

An average of 27.7 million tons of dust per year—enough to fill 104,980 semi trucks—fall to the surface over the Amazon basin. The phosphorus portion, an estimated 22,000 tons per year, is about the same amount as that lost from rain and flooding. The finding is part of a bigger research effort to understand the role of dust and aerosols in the environment and on local and global climate.

I found hair in my food, the service was terrible and the manager and the waitress were very rude. My food was undercooked and when I asked them to take it back they snarled then mumbled something under their breath when they walked away. Do not eat here. I agree with the other review that this place is a wannabe upscale restaurant.
