We’re on a roll!!  The Parker/Carboni double-team have just got the Astronomy Picture of the Day for 23rd December 2008 with our Coathanger cluster image 🙂  This one is a personal favourite of mine and was my desktop for many months.  Look down the postings and you will see our last APOD was just five days ago – so although 2008 has been very lean on APODs for us – we seem to be leaving the year on a high.

    My sky is not particularly dark. On a “good” night I can see all the stars in Ursa Minor, on a poor night I can only make out Polaris. Most nights it lies somewhere in between the two.
