My New Favorite Web Site


Astronomy Picture of The Day is really pretty cool. Each day a different image or photograph of our fascinating universe is featured, along with a brief explanation written by a professional astronomer.

You get to look at amazing pictures and you learn a little something too. What could be better?

Case in point, when I first saw this picture I thought, wow the moon is so amazing looking. And then I read the paragraph and discovered that this is actually Mercury!

I love astronomy! Thanks for the tip on the website. The moon and mercury (if you could see it) look pretty great from Ballston Spa too!

I thought it was a rock. Guess I really need to utilize that website!
