It's not often I get all science-loving on here, frankly it's not my strong point; boiling water completely bamboozles me....and don't even get me started on photosynthesis. But astronomy has always excited me a little; so I decided to whack in a photo.

Fun Facts!
  • This is the Sombrero Galaxy
  • It is 28 million light years from earth (Taking the first exit on the Chiswick Roundabout)
  • It has 800 billion suns (Not to be confused with Angelina Jolie, who has recently adopted a similar number of sons)
  • It is 50,000 light years across.

The above picture has recently been voted as the best taken with the Hubble telescope, and slightly puts my photo of a kitten eating ice cream to shame.
