This is turning out to be quite an eventful day.
The Carbon star image (below) will be on tonight’s late Meridian Weather forecast after the 10:00 p.m. news.
As I left the observatory this morning after picking up last night’s data I heard my first Cuckoo of the year.
Finally – when I logged on this morning I was surprised to find I had today’s Earth Science Picture of the Day (EPOD) – a collaborative piece of work with Dr. Brian May. Brian is not only an expert on the Zodiacal dust, he’s also a bit of a wizard when it comes to 3-D images. Brian converted my recent comet Garrad (2-D) data into a sterescopic image which you can see on the EPOD site.
Let’s hope the good news continues through the rest of today 🙂
