Mostly Sunny & Warm
Extremely pleasant spring weather continues. See the FORECAST TEMPEREATURESfor your area. Our next rain chance will be Friday, but it doesn't look very impressive with probably less than a tenth of an inch of rain from it.. The weekend looks marvalous.

This is a new product that I have been watching from Tropical Tidbits Climate Models. This is not a forecast but just an 'outlook'. Keep in mind, the 7 day period is the average of those days with some days above the values and other could be below the values. This is used to get a better idea as to what to expect (maybe).

Galaxy Cluster in Virgo
Wednesday, April 24, 2019

I took this image using the Celestron 11" telescope with the Starzona Hyperstar adapter lens providing a super wide field of view with an f/ratio of f/1.9. This is a 1hr 41 min exposure. This cluster is part of what is known as "Markarian's Chain" and is a cluster of galaxies located in the direction of the constellation of Virgo. The two brighter fuzzy objects near the center are galaxies M86 & M84. M86 is about 52 million light-years away and M84 is about 60 million ly away. They both contain about 400 billion stars each. To the lower left are two galaxies known as the "Eyes Galaxies" (NGC 4435 and 4438) and are about 52 million ly away. Several other galaxies can be seen as well being about 48 million ly to 54 million ly in distance from us.
