I Love This Quote

This is one of my favorite quotes. Have you ever watched a child with a sheet of paper and a box of crayons? I could watch them for hours. Their young imaginations are without limitations. It is magical and different, as if…unlike grownups,  they Hear Colors and See Sound.

It is almost sad to me that….the next step is always the presentation of a coloring book where they are taught to “Stay Within The Lines.”

Astronomy Picture of the Day

ight Sky Reflections from the World’s Largest Mirror
Image Credit & Copyright: Jheison Huerta

Explanation: What’s being reflected in the world’s largest mirror? Stars, galaxies, and a planet. Many of these stars are confined to the grand arch that runs across the image, an arch that is the central plane of our home Milky Way Galaxy. Inside the arch is another galaxy — the neighboring Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). Stars that are individually visible include Antares on the far left and Sirius on the far right. The planet Jupiter shines brightly just below Antares. The featured picture is composed of 15 vertical frames taken consecutively over ten minutes from the Uyuni Salt Flat in Bolivia. Uyuni Salt Flat (Salar de Uyuni) is the largest salt flat on Earth and is so large and so extraordinarily flat that, after a rain, it can become the world’s largest mirror — spanning 130 kilometers. This expansive mirror was captured in early April reflecting each of the galaxies, stars, and planet mentioned above.
