The Hubble picture show and more

I'm fascinated looking at the Whirlpool Galaxy on
my computer screen. All that energy and me like
the cat pawing at the fish tank for hours on end,
the fly on the other side of the glass, the hog
looking at a wrist watch.

How does it make you feel?

If you want it on your desktop go here, right click
and select "Set as desktop". (Windows XP)

The small version is here on the right panel.

A shame to have to look at pictures of pieces of
the Universe in two dimensions, isn't it.

Take the whole tour of the picture album.

Then take a look at other logarithmic spirals from
the chamber nautilus to the Spiral Nebula.

There's something big and small going on here.
