Orion

I love celestial objects, in particular nebulae.

The Orion Nebula was first 'discovered' in 1610 by Nicholas-Claude Fabri de Peiresc.

It is about 1,500 to 1,600 light years away and is the brightest diffuse nebula in the sky and visible to the naked eye.

But it looks best up close! The Hubble Telescope captured the best picture ever.



*As always, please check out Cooper and Camilla who always have interesting things to say.

........ooooooooOOOOOOOOoooooooo........

My human came back a little earlier today from work, but not by much. Later, Couscous' human, Anaree came over for dinner of lambshanks cooked in tomato, served with mash potato and sweet potato, and brussel sprouts. They also watched the Danish police drama Rejseholdet (Unit One) on TV. I sat on her lap briefly, which should be long enough to upset Couscous (as he is a boy cat).

I begged for some lamb by looking very pitiful. But no, I was denied this simple pleasure yet again. My human knows that I love lamb! Eating lamb is an Australian birthright!
