Photograph of the day

NASA has released an amazing image of the starlit sky above Mount Everest in its Astronomy Picture of the Day for December 5th. Here's a reduced-size version to whet your appetite. (It's in the public domain, so I can copy it for the purpose without breaching copyright.)

For the full-size version, click here, then click the image again to enlarge it.

Fascinating! Thanks, NASA, for continually publishing great images like this.
