Serendipity

Postby cybermystic » Fri May 09, 2014 1:36 pm

How's this for serendipity then? I just looked at week 3 of a Coursera Astrophysics course that Anthony Ayiomamitis put me on to and saw that the first Black-Hole candidate Cygnus X-1 sat between the Tulip nebula and a bright star :shock: :shock: I never knew that - but I did know that I had a Hyperstar image of that region so I just dug it out. YEP - sure enough - there's Cygnus X-1 sitting there - and I never knew I had it :D :D :D
