Ok, I visit Astronomy Picture of the Day on fairly regular basis (one could quantify it as daily). It’s always got something great to see. Today’s picture is just flipping gorgeous. I had to know more. I emailed the photographer Larry Landolfi. I was fairly sure he would be deluged with mail, and mine would go unnoticed. Not the case! He replied rather quickly with a lot of useful information. Nice guy. And I visited his site. This guy is a really great photographer, and not just of astronomical phenomena. You need to check this out, JoesRoom.com. He also mentioned in a few days his official site will be LandolfiPhoto.com, so when that goes live I’ll linkify that one.
