Earring 0107 - Spirals
This site has a photo of beach with a spiral constellation in the sky. It's kind of neat because when you think of everything beyond our atmosphere, you have all of these constellations etc. even though you can't see them with the naked eye, they are there. http://www.maciejtoporowicz.com/Cosmos/NGC1672.html
Another site that I like is Google images because you can see a bunch of spiral constellations and if one catches your eye, you can click on it and go to a link to read about the it. For instance, another eye catcher if the Sombrero spiral constellation. https://www.google.com/search?q=constellation+spirals&rlz=1T4GUEA_enUS514US515&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=fzGeU4ySI9GxyASshYDwCA&ved=0CB4QsAQ&biw=1148&bih=635&dpr=0.95#imgdii=_
What is even neater yet is when an everyday person takes a photo of a constellation such as John Chumack and his photos. Check out his Whirlpool Spiral Galaxy photos; the galaxy is 23 million light years away but he has a photo of it. http://www.galacticimages.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=52
We spent a lot of times as kids looking up at the stars. To this day, I continue to look to the stars. One can only imagine what is out there.
