Better Late Than Never

Well, it's the last day of the second and last holiday weekend of the...holidays. So maybe your tree is still up; ours is. Anyway, I meant to post this in a more timely manner--it's called the Christmas Tree Cluster. That's the Cone Nebula towards the bottom. Photo from the European Southern Observatory: Click photo to dramatically enlarge. Hope your holidays were good ones.

Our tree is still up too. I've been meaning to take it down but it's a lot of work, I haven't had time and the lights are so pretty! A friend told me yesterday, "You have until the 6th." Whatever that means. Some rule of etiquette I'm not privy to.

Anyway, thank you for your blog. I always enjoy it. I'm going to pass along the link to my 15 year old son, who will love these pics of nebulae and planets you've been posting.
