The Sixth Day
Wasn't that a bad Arnold movie? Ba dum dum spsh. . . Today was dominated by working on my project as specified by Mark yesterday. I continued recording the photometry of a number of different galaxies. It will be a long time before I finish all of the 50 or so galaxies ahead of me, so I am not going to participate in the volleyball game tomorrow. By the end of today, my eyes hurt from working on the computer all day. Although the work is monotonous and at some points downright boring, I find myself awed at what the images show. Some of the galaxies are something like 1600 light years away and the sizes of these objects are mind blowing. Well, off to bed as we have a busy day tomorrow with our field trip.
