How would you like to take a 3D ride through the Great Nebula in the constellation of Orion?

Accompanying track: 'Serenade for Strings Op.22 in E Major, Larghetto'---Anton Dvorak, composer

Good call, DGQ. This link to NASA's "Astronomy Picture of the Day" used to be in my signature, along with old (or rather a youthful) Semprini. All change now, of course----which is why it's here.

How about this lunar eclipse mere hours ago, which climaxed with a so-called super blood wolf moon?

"People watch the sunset from the top of a hill as the full moon rises behind them in Lisbon, Portugal."
