| ||I Want To Go To There|
This screenshot just doesn't do it justice.
Lynda Bachman, who directed my reading of Heart Shaped Nebula at Impact Theatre sent me the link to something called a Phototopic Sky Survey. I figured it had something to do with stars so I clicked on the link. I had no idea. None.
It's this amazing turn-every-which-way-and-you-can-see-the-entire-cosmos site. My mouth literally fell open, an agape smile. I think there was a tear involved that's how sappy I am for astronomy.
And yes, the first thought that popped into my head was Liz Lemon's famous, "I want to go to there." (Here's the romantic version of that line.)
Oh, and if you click on the little "i" icon you can see constellations, stars and even nebula. So guess what I found.
There they are. Soul and Heart Nebula in the upper right hand corner of the above screenshot. They're just two red clouds in the picture, but it's them.
Seeing the stars like this makes me want to plan a trip to the Canary Islands. Some day!
Some day I will go to there.
