Nice? Ron says??!! Magnificent is more like it!! What an awesome sight! It is so "unreal" to comprehend this is actually way out in space!! I can't even imagine the wonderful telescope that is able to show this, and now we have a photo???!!! It is truly amazing. I'm so glad you post these for us. It sure has made me 'sit up and take notice' of the universe and the intelligence of people who are able to show us these wonderful things. Thanx SOOO much. Verena

Stunner for sure. The clarity of this, in comparison to other telescope images, is amazing. It might not be "yours" but thanks for sharing it Phil.
