The year 2020 has been a year that none of us will forget. It has been a sad year for science. Repudiation and manipulation of scientific knowledge and models has resulted in hundreds of thousands of unnecessary deaths in America, loss of opportunity, and livelihood for millions more. Time isolated also brings a few opportunities. Time spent with my loving partner Mary has been good. I've taken the opportunity to broaden my astrophotography repertoire with deep space images.
My New Year's card shows a spectacular year for the planets with a close opposition of Mars, a bright comet, and a spectacular conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn. I am also finally making good progress on my deep space images. Some from my driveway here in Austin and some from a spectacular road trip to Northern Arizona. It is hard to tell which was made where; that is major progress for my imaging skills!
