Today’s EPOD (Earth Science Picture of the Day) is a particularly dense part of the Milky Way I found by looking at a Planetarium program – it is in Cygnus.
I called it “Stars Like Dust” after the Isaac Asimov story – but Jim has renamed it Stars Like Grains of Sand – possibly Asimov’s title is Copyrighted 🙂
Whatever – thank you Jim for continuing to publish my work from the New Forest Observatory.
Postscript: HAH!!! Good one Jim 🙂 I see that your title comes from Samuel R. Delany’s “Stars in my Pocket like Grains of Sand” – never heard of that one before. You win!!
