Morning blogsters:

It's a clear morning here.  The seven sisters are something of an hour above the western horizion.  Naturally Orion's still behind them, chasing them across the sky.

Those seven sisters are another of those M sets I mentioned yesterday.  Full of globular clusters and maybe a nebula.  They only look like seven individual stars to the naked eye.  But through a lens it's an entirely different experience.  Millions of stars in each cluster.

Telescopes and microscopes have a lot in common in that regard.  Nothing much in the universe is as simple as it appears.

Have a great day.
