What you notice.....

Just got back from the American Historical Association meeting and thought I'd share one or two images from the trip. First is a "trying to be subtle" picture of the Gates of Hell... no, actually, it's the mass interview room known as the "Job Register." I think the blur reflects much more accurately how people feel in there than a crisp, sharp shot would have.

I don't think it was deliberate, but can you think of a better name for historians' toiletries?

Speaking of historic, did any of you catch that conjunction of Mars and the Moon on the Full Moon at Christmas? We had a great view, but the pictures weren't what I wanted.

Speaking of natural wonders, I did like the way this travel shot came out.

We've had cloudy weather for weeks so we missed the conjunction. Thanks for the picture!

I hope you know the Astronomy Picture of the Day site:
