Quiet day

It was a quiet weekend here in Lake Wobegon, my home town...

Sorry, my mind was wandering. I am in Tucson, AZ, which is not my hometown. But it was still a quiet weekend, and I have little to talk about this morning. So, I though I'd just leave a picture I came across:

It's everyone's favorite, the Orion Nebula, as imaged by the Hubble Space Telescope. The Orion Nebula is a stellar nusery, where thousands of young stars have just been born, and many more are still forming, hidden behind copious amounts of dust and gas. Clicking on the picture will take you to a web site with discussions about the image, the science behind it, and lots of versions of this picture.
