My friend Carolyn Collins Petersen, a.k.a. The Spacewriter, has just started a new gig with Astrocast.tv. She now has a regular monthly show called “The Astronomer’s Universe.” Her first episode aired today, and it features “The Big Picture,” an image from the Palomar-Quest digital sky survey. It shows the Virgo Cluster of galaxies, and is something akin to the Hubble Deep Field image. Carolyn’s webcast is a stunning and beautiful look at this amazing part of our night sky, and with wonderful background music and Carolyn’s great voice, (can’t find enough superlatives!) this is must-see TV! Thanks to Carolyn and Astrocast.tv for sharing the video.
For additional information: The Big Picture website, and Carolyn’s 365 Days of Astronomy podcast about The Big Picture.
