While my rosebuds strive to come out in full blossom, I need to take a break from photo hunting and farming activities. I therefore use some time to surf the net without any particular purpose. When surfing the net yesterday, I discovered some interesting information well worth submitting to other blogfriends. The next photo is not potatoes.
The Animation of Armageddon as an artist made, based on NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope findings, give evidence that a high-speed collision of this sort occurred a few thousand years ago around a young star, called HD 172555, still in the early stages of planet formation. The star is about 100 light-years from Earth.
Take a break from your own blogging activity and see this artist's concept which shows a celestial body about the size of our moon slamming at great speed into a body the size of Mercury. The Press release from NASA can be found here
If finding this video frightening, do not hesitate to return to my roses.
Tomorrow it is Sky Watch Friday so look up. May be you too can discover something exciting out there.
