Gary, the contractor who rebuilt our home, is also an amateur astronomer. He sent me this Hubble telescope image yesterday, of the "sombrero galaxy." It is said to be 50,000 light years wide.
James and I drove through the fog to the airport this morning, and on the way back I took a walk at Green Lake, closer to home. I don't know how anyone could find it too routine to walk here -- it is always changing, always different. This morning it was as mysterious as that galaxy.
