Three ways to live

Which is your way?

Google Sky

I have tried Google Sky for the first time yesterday. It is a part of Google Earth software that Google allows downloading for free. I must say this is the first time in my life I realized how small we truly are. Of course I knew it in my head but yesterday was first time I actually experienced it. Just choose one of those places designated as “Hubble Showcase”, zoom in as much as you can, wait for 100% to be downloaded and zoom out. How are you feeling?

Here are just a few images I would like to share (click on the image to view a larger picture):

Dunno. For the last picture I was just trying to get a random spot. The first picture is a nebula, second – Andromeda, third – some new star formation.
