I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Astronomy Tuesday


This looks like the tangle of colored threads at the bottom of a sewing basket, but it's the remnants of a supernova in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a small companion galaxy to our Milky Way. Eventually the gases and particles that shine so brilliantly here will be recycled into new stars, maybe new planets.

Now that I have finished all the draft postings from my trip to Iran, I need to finish going through pictures and write about some of the things I skipped. But for now, I want to just take a deep breath, be home, be grateful to be here.
