Thinking About the Milky Way


I’ve been thinking about the universe a lot lately, call me sentimental….and for the last week I’ve been wrapping my mind around the notion that our galaxy, the Milky Way, has millions of stars and it is only one of over a hundred billion galaxies in the known universe.

I have to say that the above photo (yes, I know the colors were added for clarity) reminds me of Kenneth Noland’s late target paintings…slightly cold, somewhat hazy but very fascinating…I just love ’em.
