December 22, 2015
Image taken with Nikon D3300, 14mm f/2.8, ISO-200, 10 second exposure. Both M45 and M42 are clearly visible from an average night sky over Florida. The high passing cloud adds to the effect.
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.
