Astonomy Picture of the Day

Per the website: "Each day a different image or photograph of our fascinating universe is featured , along with a brief explanation written by a professional astronomer."

This could be a beautiful way to start our mornings each day!


Astronomy P. O. D.


This one deserves to be seen in the future, so I'm establishing a link for all who come to this thread after it is no longer the Picture of the Day --

CJ, I see they spelled your name wrong

Given the unusual vantage point, one guess is that the bird is a Great Horned Owl, although it is hoped that a properly under-schooled ornithologist can e-mail Dr. Schwarz with the bird's true species.

Good Rover Photo

This may have already have been posted somewhere here but I found this photo of the rover... not sure which one...
anyhow good resolution with the rover drilling into a rock it looks like.
looks like there was a problem aligning some frames in the lower left.

It's exciting to see the rover still active. Here's a photo from the 1997 Sojourner expedition --
