    Beautiful pictures, Bae. I am surprised that the cargo terminal looks so lovely.

    A long long time ago, someone had a very bad day!

    The Little Ring Nebula. There's a bit of the star's core in the center, surrounded by, well, the rest of the star and what used to be the neighborhood before the Vogons put in the freeway bypass.

    Don't skip those local Planning Commission meetings!

    Looking right above Patos Island early this morning from Mt. Constitution:

    Bode's Galaxy (M81) and its nearby friend the Cigar Galaxy (M82).

    They are gravitationally interacting with each other, causing the Cigar Galaxy to be forming lots and lots of new stars. Much akin to how proximity to Seattle causes more homes to be built here on Orcas Island ��

    Photo taken with just an iPhone(!), while out playing with the bioluminescent dinoflagellates on the dock.
