Milky Way galactic center
January 15, 2013
Back in the good old days when I could get Kodak 35mm, :-) I popped the camera onto the 4.5" reflector for a 5 minute exposure. The image was made during the early 1990's and the 2 giants Uranus and Neptune are in here from memory, I seem to remember going over the stars with an astronomy map, found something not on the chart, and then headed off to wind planets around, ah haa. There was something I had never seen in the telescope, (couldn't see what I was looking for), yet it was on the 35mm film.
An asteroid or comet headed for Earth is the only large-scale natural disaster we can prevent. Working together to fund our Shoemaker NEO Grants for astronomers, we can help save the world.
