EPOD number 57 today – Stars Like Grains of Sand

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!!
