A reader sent me to a web article called Seeing Through Our Galaxy, which by means of a lot of high resolution images demonstrates the improved view you can get of the center of our galaxy—with A* in there somewhere!—when you use instruments that look at it in longer wavelengths, which are better at seeing through all the interstellar dust and gas that's in the way. Neat pictures!

If you're celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday this Thursday, you'll be relieved to know that you won't have to interrupt the festivities to keep up with the latest A* page, because I'll be celebrating as well and won't be getting a page done on that day! I don't think.

My dad and I will be putting up a show of A* artwork at a local Seattle restaurant over the weekend, and I'll get you the details of that next week so you can go check it out during the month of December if you're in the area and needing to have framed A* prints looming over you as you eat. : o

This past weekend I woke up super early one day with the weird urge to paint a big A* painting, so I did! And I was going to put it up for auction today and make a big blog post about it but then I realized that would mean the bulk of the auction would be upstaged for a lot of folks by the long holiday weekend, and gee I wouldn't want any of you to miss it. So that will have to wait until next week as well! Hmmm probably Tuesday I'm thinking. Anyway it's by far the biggest watercolor painting I've ever done and maybe it's just the sleep deprivation talking but I think it came out pretty well!
