  • Astronomy 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 --
    Star Trails at 16.000 feet

        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 --
