With the power of technology - and my external harddrive - I've moved the operation to another computer and another network!
This is my last post about my most recent trip to New York, and I'm excited to show some of what we saw in the museum. We saw a lot of great things, although we didn't get a chance to see everything, what we did see was pretty great.
We spent a great deal of time in the new planetarium, which was absolutely fascinating. I love learning more about how the universe came to be and the possibilities within the galaxy. Knowing how much the view of the universe has changed is very interesting to me.
The Willamette Meteorite weights 15.5 tons and is comprised of solid iron. The plaque goes into a lot more detail about how it is formed in space, but I think the texture of this is completely amazing - there is nothing else like it on Earth.
This is definitely one of my favorite shots from the museum. I love that I was able to get all eight (no more Pluto...) into the shot - even if I had to lie on the floor. I'm still amazed at how large the gas giants are compared to those planets closer to the sun - Earth being the third from the left on the ledge.
I'm not sure which "hall" this is from, but someday, I'll own my own snake. Seeing the structure of the skull and the very fine ribs throughout the body is amazing!
This is from an area that was closed off. I actually think I'm lucky for being able to get this shot: the secuity guy let me get on the floor (again) to get the whole area in the frame.
