    It's your dominant Neanderthal genes expressing themselves. :^) You wouldn't
    see that looking through a telescope. Those were taken either greatly time
    lapsed or with film/sensors designed to pick up non-visible EM wavelengths.
    I've seen the Andromeda galaxy in a telescope and it was just a fuzzy white
    oval.

    nah...I think I just look at it like a kid would; mystified because
    space is so cool and fascinating, but scared because I mean, it's
    *space*! :)

    that's what I thought. but there's a closeup of the sun that says it was
    taken by an amateur astronomer with a simple telescope and camera.
    weird.

    The most beautiful thing I've ever seen with my own eyes is the Northern
    Lights in the sky over a totally calm (which is almost never) Lake
    Superior. I knew at the time, even though I was only 10 or so, that I would
    never behold anything greater for the rest of my days. So yes, I can
    relate, Paul!
