Happy New Year again everyone! I sincerely hope that you all had a safe and slightly irresponsible New Year’s Eve because it’s back to work on yet another 584 million mile jaunt around the sun.
Let’s kick the year off right with this spectacular image from Justin Dodson of the Milky Way galaxy high overhead, far away, and long ago, as it reflects over a calm body of water in northern Arizona. In this image you can see the nucleus of the galaxy and in it, lies a region known as the “Dark Horse.” Can you spot it? Though I haven’t been in a long time; Arizona, like many locations across the southwest are a favorite of mine for their truly amazing landscapes and open horizons.
