ASTRONOMY PICTURE OF THE DAY

Actually my favorite astronomy website posted this on February 28. It's the Flaming Star Nebula. It's about fifteen hundred light years away and can be found near the constellation Auriga, the Charioteer. Auriga can be found just above and to the north of Taurus. With luck and a small telescope the nebula is visible from earth.

Screw the small telescopes!!  I want to see images like this!!  I guess the Internet and NASA have spoiled me.
