Earth Science Picture of the Day

Got today’s Earth Science Picture of the Day (EPOD) with an image of Aldebaran and the Hyades (which coincidentally also makes an appearance in the May 2015 issue of Astronomy Now magazine).  Taken with the Canon 200mm lens at f#4 I had to “overdo” the 4-pointed artificial star spikes to try and cover up the 8-spikes generated by the lens aperture – I don’t like 8-pointed bright stars.  Thank you Jim at EPOD for continuing to publish work from the New Forest Observatory :)

Just been told I got today’s Earth Science Picture of the Day (EPOD) http://epod.usra.edu/

Took a look, and yep, sure enough, my favourite insect – the Morpho Rhetenor butterfly which kindly provided me with the Patent design for a new type of Photonic Crystal :)

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!!
