Look at all the stars

You might be able to guess that I like sky viewing (bad weather blocking opportunities like the lunar and solar eclipses not withstanding).  I've long loved the Hubble Deep Field views, and now there's a new toy to play with - a mosaic of the Milky Way.  Start out by reading the article at Citizen Science.  Then, play with the zoom tool of the mosaic itself.  Mucho cool.

Note, I'm starting to build up a stock of blog entries again, so I'm going to try to go back to a daily release schedule.  This may only last a couple of weeks, though.
