For Your Windows


on January 13, 2011

This is so cool! Right here in Sunspot, New Mexico at the Apache Point Observatory, there is 138-megapixel camera attached to a 2.5-meter telescope that took this amazing picture.

Check out the article!  There are a half a billion things going on in this picture.

I have to admit this inspires me to become better at using a camera so I don’t miss anything that happens outside my windows in my own back yard. Last week I missed taking a picture of a huge hawk that captured a dove in my own back yard and sat there posing for 10 minutes while I tried to take pictures with my dead cell phone and my husband couldn’t find his camera. Geez…how inadequate are we, anyway?

This picture is truly a window to the universe!
