THIS WILL BE MY LAST BLOG HERE. WU HAS BECOME TOO BIG, TOO PUBLIC, AND TOO HIGH TECH FOR ME. I CAN'T EVEN POST A VIDEO ANYMORE (THANKS ROB FOR TRYING TO TEACH AN OLD DOG NEW TRICKS). I DELETED ALL BUT MY FIRST AND LAST BLOGS AND LEFT SOME PHOTOS OF MY TRIPS AROUND THE WORLD - FOR POSTERITY. BUT I DID RENEW MY YEARLY $5 MEMBERSHIP TO VISIT FRIENDS, SO YOU'LL BE SEEING ME AROUND.

I AM VERY GRATEFUL FOR THE WUNDERFUL PAST 10 YEARS. I'VE HAD A BLAST AND LOVE ...

The EYE of GOD, Helix Nebula - Will our Sun look like this one day? The Helix Nebula is the closest example of a planetary nebula created at the end of the life of a Sun-like star. The outer gasses of the star expelled into space appear from our vantage point as if we are looking down a helix. The remnant central stellar core, destined to become a white dwarf star, glows in light so energetic it causes the previously expelled gas to fluoresce. The Helix Nebula, given a technical designation of NGC 7293, lies about 650 light-years away towards the constellation of Aquarius and spans about 2.5 light-years. The above picture is a composite of newly released images from the ACS instrument on the Hubble Space Telescope and wide-angle images from the Mosaic Camera on the WIYN 0.9-m Telescope at Kitt Peak National Observatory. A close-up of the inner edge of the Helix Nebula shows complex gas knots of unknown origin.
