Holy exploding stars, Batman!

As always, click the image to see the story.

PS: I've discovered how to combine exercise with LJ - just move your exer-cycle up to the computer table. Now to solve that pesky typing issue... I do have a wireless keyboard, but one's moving thighs do not a good typing desk make.

And just think: we have a star just like that one 7,500 light years away.

Oh come now, use your imagination! We couldn't get that level of photographic detail from a new supernova. And you call yourself an SFnal person. Feh. (Anyhow, the image also has two actual photos.)

Ha - excellent solution. Often the simplest ones are the best.

My writing desk for many years was a cast-off office waiting-room chair with wooden arms. I attached a board across the top with a hinge so I could mount my keyboard at the perfect location. Ugly, but I wish I still had that old thing.
