Ink in "The Planetary Report"

Below is a Hubble Space Telescope photo that I wrote a blurb about. To my delight, my paragraph accompanies this photo in a tribute to Hubble published in the current issue of The Planetary Report. This magazine is published by The Planetary Society. As a struggling writer, this was a sweet little victory for me.

In my caption, I briefly explain how this photo offers perspective through juxtaposing an asteroid with the vast universe. It also offers a bit of comedy. When I first viewed the photo, I literally chuckled at this little fellow crashing Hubble's attempt at a panorama. Anyhow, it was a thrill and an honor to see a bit of my writing make it into such a wonderful publication. To read my actual caption, you will need to peek at a society member's copy. Or better yet, join The Planetary Society!

July 20th approaches folks. Hope you will join all space enthusiasts in remembering and celebrating the Apollo 11 moon landing.
