So Much to See

I've been on a science roll lately, as many of you could see, and I decided to share this.  There is so much out there for us to see and Phil Plait of the Bad Astronomy blog at Discover Magazine has compiled his list of the top ten astronomy photos of 2009.  Check these out, they are truly gorgeous and amazing in so many ways.

Next year is going to be even better when it comes to looking into space.  The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter is orbiting the moon right now, the Kepler telescope is probing stars for earth-like planets, the New Horizons mission is continuing its way to Pluto and the Kuiper Belt and will arrive there in 2015.  We are beginning to find out more and more about our solar system and our universe.  To me, it is an amazing time to be alive, all you have to do is look around you.
