Winter 2008-9 Mike Art
Hope you enjoy "Sundorian Smurfs: Tycho & Doreen;" Tycho's head and the sun behind them are supernovas.
The sun is Tycho's Supernova. I did not tweak his supernova at all. The image credit is NASA/MPIA/Calar Alto Observatory.
Tycho's head is Kepler's Supernova. I did not tweak it, either. The image credit is R. Sankrit and W. Blair/JHU/NASA/ESA.
I hope they enjoy my artistic incorporation of their supernova shots as much we universal layfolk!
Winter sure has started with a fury here in North America! Sheesh!
Looks like I will have to replace this gif with a jpeg. jpegs are better for photos, such as Tycho's head......*s* and will clean up by his head, too......so check back, and will be adding more images all winter, anyway.....so bookmark this page, now before you forget!
"Turquoise Boy" was inspired by a song of that name on Sonic Youth's 2006 album "Rather Ripped." Great song, you guys, and Kim!
