    Something Wonderful...

    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    That is wonderful picture.

    I love the way it unfolded, and I was not sure what would appear.

    Thank you for that Corno Dolce

    HI RADM Marval,

    I'm glad you liked it. The picture accompanies an article about "dark skys" i.e. places with little or no light pollution from man-made sources. To illustrate better, here are other perspectives:

    I've not been to Central Australia, but I have been to Broken Hill (google earth Broken Hill if you're not sure where it is: very western edge of New South Wales) and the stars from freezing cold winter night sky there were amazing.

    That was a beautiful picture of the night sky. You don't know it but I
    used to be an amature astronomer at one time. I had my little telescope
    and along with some Astronomy magazines so that I can look at the
    heavens. I noticed Taurus and Orion in the picture right off. The picture
    you took was a spiral arm of the Milky Way which is our galaxy.

    Now that one would make an excellent desktop background.

    Always liked the astronomy courses I took in college - we actually had our own planetarium with one of those projectors that could place images on the domed cieling. It was always so fascinating to enjoy then, and even now enjoy looking to the heavens during our cloud free nights of Arizona.

    I suppose if I hadn't become a musician, I would have been an astronomer.

    I'm glad you took this picture of the night sky. There are some disturbing
    things that I'm hearing about the year 2012. Either there will be a desiaster
    on the way or something wonderful for us to behold. The american natives
    of Mexico and Central America are predicting. The Astezs and the Mayan
    actually practiced astronomy as a religious richeral. I can't spell that
    right at all! But these people knew their astronomy, math, and science
    better than any professer in college. It has me both excited and scared
    at the same time. What do you think of it?
