Misc Ramblings
OK... its been a strange week, but, I'm back home now, Jaymac and SuperDwarf in tow.. and we still have miles to go before we can sleep.. :)

We had 2 Gold Stars this week, starting with SeaMax USA who crashed the 10k barrier, and finishing up with jester who crashed the 1 million Credit party with a vengence.. woot...

Dave Rave was our top cruncher this week, dumping 13,626 Credits to surplant our usual first place winner, who took second this week. Yup, olive was our 2nd place finisher with 12,153 Credits, while Humfrog64 snagged 3rd with 8,120 Credits. jester, our gold star, nailed a double by landing in 4th with 7,834 Credits.. who's the man?!?!? thats right...

affliction was our top mover this week, using 4,666 Credits to snag 9 places on the team charts. Thats called skill, my friends...

Shoot, we even had a mover and shaker this week as QUAD XEON managed to claw his way out of the Cat Toys, and become the newest member of The Chow Hounds. Nicely Done.

Anyways, thats prettymuch it. We might have had more, but only 57 of our 199 registered users managed to return so much as 1 credit this week, and thats just not enough to compete. So I'll see you guys all on monday night.. and between now and then.. make everyone crunch ;)

Still Life with NGC 2170
Credit & Copyright: Stefan Seip

Explanation: In this beautiful celestial still life composed with a cosmic brush, dusty nebula ngc 2170 shines at the upper left. Reflecting the light of nearby hot stars, NGC 2170 is joined by other bluish reflection nebulae and a compact red emission region against a backdrop of stars. Like the common household items still life painters often choose for their subjects, the clouds of gas, dust, and hot stars pictured here are also commonly found in this setting - a massive, star-forming molecular cloud in the constellation monoceros. The giant molecular cloud, Mon R2, is impressively close, estimated to be only 2,400 light-years or so away. At that distance, this canvas would be about 15 light-years across.
