star light, star bright

The Astronomy Picture of the Day caught my eye the other day... there was a beautiful stellar explosion a couple of years ago that the Hubble caught on film. That same star has been the pic of the day before, in April of last year, when they combined images taken over 8 months to make an animated-gif movie of the explosion. Sad to think that our view of such things is going to be limited by our pResident's shortsighteness... we've learned more about the universe since we've had the Hubble than we did in all of the time preceding it.
