Milky Way in Michigan - Tamara's Journeys

Milky Way in Michigan

September 23rd, 2014

My brother and I went outside in the yard last night to gaze at the stars and Milky Way. What an awesome sight to be able to see the Milky Way! The night sky is breathtaking when you get away from city lights. So I decided to make a wish saying, “Star light, star bright first star I see tonight. I wish I may, I wish I might….wait a minute it’s just a satellite!” LOL

And another thing. Isn’t it a good thing the guy in charge of naming galaxies was into chocolate bars and not Chinese food. Otherwise, the Milky Way might have been named Moo Goo Gui Pan, and who wants to have to learn about that?

Finally, and I’ll let you go read more interesting diversions, The New York Times recently published a new Hubble photograph of distant galaxies colliding. Of course, astronomers have had pictures of colliding galaxies for quite some time now, but with the vastly improved resolution provided by the Hubble Space Telescope, you can actually see lawyers rushing to the scene…
