Galactic Plane

I don't think I'll ever tire of craning my neck up under clear dark skies and contemplating our place, or lack thereof, in the universe. Or multiverse. Or hologram. Whatever you fancy.

Gas, dust, and pine

This photo came from a special spot in Glenbrook at Lake Tahoe, on a particularly perfect summer night. Light courtesy of the ol' pocket supercomputer.

Speaking of cool space stuff: I think if I had "it" to do all over again, I'd be somehow involved with the Solar Dynamics Observatory, in part because telling people you're a heliophysicist would be pretty rad, but mostly because of stuff like this: SDO goodness (youtube).
