“A free people ought…to be armed”
Explanation: Where will the next Perseid meteor appear? Sky enthusiasts who trekked outside
for the Perseid meteor shower that peaked over the past few days typically had this
question on their mind. Six meteors from this past weekend are visible in the above stacked
image composite, including one bright fireball streaking along the band of the background
Milky Way Galaxy. All Perseid meteors appear to come from the shower radiant in the
constellation of Perseus. Early reports about this year’s Perseids indicate that as many as
100 meteors per hour were visible from some dark locations during the peak. The above
digital mosaic was taken near Weikersheim, Germany.

Explanation: Skygazers around planet Earth enjoyed the close encounter of planets and Moon in July 15’s predawn skies. And while many saw bright Jupiter next to the slender, waning crescent, Europeans also had the opportunity to watch the ruling gas giant pass behind the lunar disk, occulted by the Moon as it slid through the night. Clouds threaten in this telescopic view from Montecassiano, Italy, but the frame still captures Jupiter after it emerged from the occultation along with all four of its large Galilean moons. The sunlit crescent is overexposed with the Moon’s night side faintly illuminated by Earthshine. Lined up left to right beyond the dark lunar limb are Callisto, Ganymede, Jupiter, Io, and Europa. In fact, Callisto, Ganymede, and Io are larger than Earth’s Moon, while Europa is only slightly smaller.

The Hubble View–
Explanation: Few cosmic vistas excite the imagination like the Orion Nebula. Also known as M42, the nebula’s glowing gas surrounds hot young stars at the edge of an immense interstellar molecular cloud only 1,500 light-years away. The Orion Nebula offers one of the best opportunities to study how stars are born partly because it is the nearest large star-forming region, but also because the nebula’s energetic stars have blown away obscuring gas and dust clouds that would otherwise block our view – providing an intimate look at a range of ongoing stages of starbirth and evolution. This detailed image of the Orion Nebula is the sharpest ever, constructed using data from the Hubble Space Telescope’s Advanced Camera for Surveys and the European Southern Observatory’s La Silla 2.2 meter telescope. The mosaic contains a billion pixels at full resolution and reveals about 3,000 stars.

The spider weaves a sticky web
To capture bugs to eat.
What keeps the spider’s sticky web
From sticking to her feet?
Spider webs are very tricky
Because not all the strands are sticky.
Unlike the passing hapless fly,
The spider knows which strands are dry.
But if she accidentally stands
Upon one of the sticky strands,
She still would not get stuck, you see–
Her oily body slides off free.
I love these creepy creatures and i love to capture them in photographs.
I captured this picture in last summers when I stopped in the mid of highway for drinking water …this spider catches my attention by his giant size. When i shooted this picture with a autofocus camera of mobile phone ,this spider was making the web.
This is the photograph is captured by Sony Ericson C510 mobile phone. And this is my life’s very first macro photograph. After shooting this photo i moved towards the macro photography very much and now i am a very big lover of macro.
Some times we missed these small things in real but macro photography brings life to these small things and and makes them noticeable to every one, in fact they look more wonderful in macro.
