Well.

I'm in an Honors Astronomy class this year at my high school, mostly because I didn't feel like taking a double-period AP science.  Also, the universe and the cosmos are REALLY COOL.

Yes.  Anyhow, as a part of our curriculum, we get to use Chilean telescopes and request pictures from them in different filters and then play around with image corrections and merge the images together and fix the contrast and stuff.  And this is my first in-color one that I've done.  It's my first one!

Isn't it neat?  (You can click it for a larger image, by the way.)  I mean, I know that you can probably Google tons of these pictures and there might be some available that are better than this, but seriously.  I made and fixed this image from raw things taken from telescopes.

If I actually get into Yale (which is longshot, sadly), I'm totally going to look into a double major in Astrophysics and then something more liberal-artsy.  Just saying.
