Perspective...





Antares is the 15th brightest star in the sky and is more than 1000 light years away.


This is a Hubble telescope ultra deep field infrared view of countless "entire" galaxies billions of light years away.

This is a close up of one of the darkest regions of the photo above.

Hi William, say your photos are not loading! Could be me and my tired computer.

Best,

Sorry about that. They are showing up on mine. They should be on my Picasa site also. It is linked through the photo of the Eiffel Tower in my side bar.

Thanks for stopping by.

If my ego were in those photos, it would be right between Betelgeuse and Antares.
