  • Did you see the Persied Meteors last weekend? I saw some Friday Night and Saturday morning. I stayed up to watch them peak Sunday morning, but the marine layer rolled in around midnight and wiped out the view. I saw a few more on Sunday night.

    I’ve been out looking at the stars a lot lately. I just bought a telescope and I’ve been having a lot of fun checking out the moon and the planets. I tried looking at the Orion nebula, but it certainly didn’t look like the pictures I’ve seen. It just looked like a bluish fuzzy spot in the sky.

    I was a little bit disappointed. Perhaps the moon was interfering with my view? I went up to my computer and set about making my own nebula.

    The result, “Starbirth” is now up for your review. I’ve only been working on it for a couple of days now, and I might have more to add. Any feedback you might have would be helpful.
