Welcome to the United States of America.

Moving right along: Galaxy number four of six from Proposal 10550! Lovely spiral structures to this one and also a nice contrast with a background edge-on galaxy seen straight through the galactic nucleus. Look at how bright the background galaxy is compared to it. I am only just beginning to learn how dark matter possibly takes up residence in the centers of these low-surface-brightness galaxies as opposed to mainly the halo of normal galaxies. I’m also still trying to understand if these can be called dwarf galaxies. Sometimes you can’t just look at something and drop it easily into a category or two.
Speaking of background galaxies, my favorite part about this image are these faint fuzzies. On the left side of the field is a three-armed galaxy (cropped, close-up here) the likes of which I have never seen before. I’ve seen other pictures of them but they’re usually jumbled and barely discernible as having three arms. For this one, there is no question. It’s almost perfect and it even looks triangular.
In the upper right corner is a galaxy which looks exactly like a baby crocodile head.
The chip gap is here to torment me again. I’ve filled it with somewhat blurry, noisy fake data to keep the distraction minimal. As always, it is not blended with real data. The line between the fake data in the gap and the real data is a hard one.
North is NOT up. It is 29.5° clockwise from up.

LENO AND VONNEGUT DRAW (drew) THEIR OWN FACES.
The idea behind the “Time Sliced” Project was to photograph iconic world buildings at sunset and capture the changing light from day to night in a single image. Experimenting with a few different kinds of processes I came up with the “Sliced” idea. I decided to Slice time and light showing the progression of the day from left to right.
German Shepherds and their floppy ears. There is nothing I do not like about this.
The Pencee Scarecrows
On April 30, 2009, Pencee McLane left with five of her closest friends on a camping trip. What occurred to Pencee and her friends that night has become a mystery for the ages.
It’s reported that the group arrived at their planned destination at 7 PM. The group made camp and spent the night drinking and having a good time. When Pencee awoke the following morning, all of the people in her group were gone.
Upon investigating the campsite, she found nothing out of the ordinary.
The SUV was still there.
The tents were still there. All of the group’s food and clothing was still in their respective tents.
Nothing had been disturbed.
She spent the next hour texting and calling her friends, but not one person responded. She even called their parents. Beginning to panic, Pencee called the police.
Authorities arrived on scene, but were just as confused as Pencee. No signs of struggle, no signs of other people.
The strangest thing to come out of the initial investigation was the discovery that the only footprints at the campsite were Pencee’s.
It gets worse.
On May 1, 2010, the first body appeared.
Sara Paella was found in the middle of a field, right on the spot where the original group camped. As seen in the pictures above, her desiccated corpse was found tied to a rough crucifix with barbed wire. A stitched burlap sack was thrown over her head and a collar of barbed wire adorned her neck.
Police determined that the cause of death was strangulation with the barbed wire.
On May 1, 2011, the second body appeared. Kitty Sigmon was found crucified across the street from where Pencee was living at the time. The crucifix appeared in her neighbor’s backyard. Residents on the street all reported that the only thing they heard that night was a droning noise that sounded like a plane.
Pencee McLane relocated to a new city shortly after this occurred.
On May 1, 2012, the third body appeared. Melissa Green was found crucified and hung with barbed wire. Once again, the body appeared across the street from where Pencee McLane lived. This time in the front yard.
Pencee once again moved to a new city.
On May 1, 2013, the fourth body appeared. Willis Timmermen was found crucified in Pencee’s own front yard, his body in the same shape as the others.
May 1, 2014 will be here soon and the fifth member of the group still hasn’t been found.
I wonder where that scarecrow will appear…
Is dis real?
