DAILY ASTRONOMER IMAGE PAGE

Greetings!

This page presents images to accompany various Daily Astronomer images. (The "Daily Astronomer" is an free e-mail article sent M - F at midnight.  To sign up, just send an e-mail to  egleason@usm.maine.edu  with "DA" written in the subject line.)

We have listened!!  Or, at least, read..

Subscribers are frustrated because the images that we sometimes post to accompany certain articles are gone by the time some people get around to reading those articles.  Therefore, we have changed our format for reader convenience.    Instead of posting images on the same page and then erasing them when we post the next images, we will devote a separate page for each article that uses accompanying images.    We will keep these pages linked to this page throughout the school year. So, if you're reading an October article in mid July, the image, if one was posted, will still be available to you.    Just another way the Southworth Planetarium tells the world that we're bored as hell and are desperate for things to do.

And....at the suggestion of a rather thoughtful subscriber, we have now arranged the images in descending chronological order.  The most recent is on top, instead of bottom.
