I made this photo of the spiral galaxy #M99 from my garden last night. I'm lucky to have a clear sky just for my holiday week with no moon light in the evening :-) In addition it 's one of the driest spring I've seen over many years, It is important to make more than one hour of exposure without dew or condensation on the telescope. This galaxy is distant from us about 60 million light year !

#2014JO25 is shaped like #67P !
Radar images of an asteroid that will safely fly by Earth tomorrow were obtained in the early morning hours on Tuesday by our Goldstone Deep Space Communications Complex in California. The asteroid, known as 2014 JO25, will fly by at a distance of about 1.1 million miles (1.8 million kilometers), or about 4.6 times the distance from Earth to the moon. Learn more:
