Star Mosaics

Quick update coming at ya... I have been seriously slacking on this blog and I look to fix that in the near future. I am 3 days out from a move to Richmond, VA. Once i'm settled i'm gonna try and update this 2-3 times a month, at least. With this post i'm gonna share some images of the Milky way. Enjoy.

Milky Way from Flagstaff thanks in part to a light pollution ordinance

Milky Way from Sweden

Milky Way from Japan

Wisps like this are all that remain visible of a Milky Way star. About 7,500 years ago that star exploded in a supernova leaving the Veil Nebula, also known as the Cygnus Loop.
