The universe is amazing -- its size and majesty are some of the humanity's longest-running interests. Terry Robinson, a Canadian, who went to Melbourne, Australia, was able to capture a nebula that resembled something everyone is familiar with: the Statue of Liberty.
Indeed, once you look closely and think about it, the nebula does indeed resemble the famous U.S. landmark that was a gift of friendship from the French. Looks like astrophotography is a stellar hobby!
Terry utilized a telescope in order to view the nebula and capture it using twenty eight exposures at 1,800 seconds each. Amazingly, the telescope was already ten years old.
Terry often does his astrophotography fifteen kilometers away from the heart of a bustling city.
See the resemblance?
Terry has always been an avid stargazer and wonders about the mysteries of the universe. He happily recalled how he witnessed the Apollo landing with his father back then.
Terry is so fond of astrophotography, he still has the 35 mm camera he bought back in his university years to start general photography and astrophotography.
The universe is vast, and we humans have yet to uncover all of its secrets. Isn't it exciting? Now go get a telescope and see if you can witness something amazing as well.
