During the course of her career, [Williamina] Fleming discovered 10 novae, 52 nebulae, and 310 variable stars—a remarkable achievement for someone without a formal education in astronomy.
Respect for the Scottish maid. :clap:

<swoon> Man, I love the Grand Design galaxies. Almost as much as I love globular clusters.

In unrelated news, I finally got to see the International Space Station for the first time. I used NASA's nifty SpotTheStation page to see when it would be overhead, and it did not disappoint -- a slow-moving, bright, non-blinking light across the sky.

Next time I'll have my binoculars....

We pray for one last landing
On the globe that gave us birth
Let us rest our eyes on the fleecy skies
And the cool, green hills of Earth
