Space - WISE!!

From the new WISE (the new Wide-field Infared Survey Explorer) on Hubble. First Spectacular Views of the Sky from WISE

We also had POTUS and various schoolkids talking live to the astronauts on the International Space Station (streamed live on the WH website) - a very good day for science!!

I've been waiting forever to say - It doesn't look like that in the backyard 'scope. The one at the bottom is the Andeomeda galaxy I think. It looks really odd in infrared.

Hope all is well with you and yours.

It is Andromeda and it does look odd, doesn't it?

Nice to see you here!
