The Black Eye Galaxy from your back yard

Steve Morris is an amateur astronomer and took this picture of the Black Eye Galaxy from his home. This stuff is floating above our heads in plain view. You just need the right equipment to see it and you don’t need Hubble (all of the time).

I copied this from his Facebook post in the Astronomy for Fun group.

Now think about this. You see the stars above you at night. Did you know you can see not only our own Milky Way Galaxy, but other galaxies as well?

You don’t need to depend on NASA for everything. This stuff is right above your head. You just need the right equipment, knowledge and determination to capture pictures like this.
