Should've...sent...a poet.

Wait, I thought you said it was  neverLupus.

Why a comma, subby? Did you think it, was necessary?

crappy music. Really, every space video should use John Murphy's Sunshine Theme.

For now and forever.

That comma style, bugs the hell out of me. Friend of mine uses it, everywhere, in her posts, and it just, really, annoys me.

Commas are not salt, you do not sprinkle them everywhere.

Yeah that was, pretty cool.

It's not Lupus 3. It's never Lupus 3.

First superfluous comma of the day, too.

So many stars we'll never, ever visit in person.
/How you like that comma?

To think that every point of light is a star, and that around every one of those stars is likely an entire system of planets.

Do you have OCD or something? Seriously, get some help.

FTA: this new picture form a perfect example of a small group of such hot young stars

I looked for Justin Bieber and Ke$ha in that picture but they were nowhere to be found.

If the star is Lupus 3 then wouldn't it be the3rd brightest star in the constellation Lupus?

People can hate on lens flare all they want, but I love seeing stars photographed like this.

Even more mind-blowing is that some points of light are more than one star.

Muta: If the star is Lupus 3 then wouldn't it be the3rd brightest star in the constellation Lupus?


Lupus 3 is the dark cloud of gas and dust (nebula) where the stars are forming.  The third brightest star in the constellation Lupus would be "Gamma Lupi."

(And yes, even as someone who works in astronomy, I find the "conjugations" of constellation names annoying.  If you want "α UMi," "α Ursae Minoris" or "Alpha Ursae Minoris," just farking say "Polaris" already instead of "Alfoomy.")
