Space photo of the day: June 22

This floating ring is the size of a galaxy. In fact, it is part of the photogenic Sombrero Galaxy, one of the largest galaxies in the nearby Virgo Cluster of Galaxies. The dark band of dust that obscures the mid-section of the Sombrero Galaxy in optical light actually glows brightly in infrared light.  R. Kennicutt/Steward Obs./SSC/JPL/Caltech/NASA


Composers and musicians born today: June 22

June 22, 1830Theodor Leschetizky, the Polish pianist, teacher and composer was born at Lancut. His famous teacher was Czerny (he of the faous Edudes every pianist learns) . Leschetizky’s students included Schnabel, Gabrilowitsch and Paderewski.

I am ashamed to admit that I have only heard of Czerny and Paderewski.  Paderewski was also a diplomat and the third Prime Minster of the Republic of Poland.  I didn’t know that. He also owned a vineyard in Rancho San Ignacio, near Paso Robles, in San Luis Obispo County, on the central coast of California. I didn’t know that either.  I know, today is not his birthday, but it interesting (to pianists at least).

Space Photos of the Day 06/21

June 21, 2010

This NASA image released on June 21 shows the Aurora Australis Observed from the International Space Station on May 29, 2010. This aurora image is taken during a geomagnetic storm that was most likely caused by a coronal mass ejection from the Sun on May 24. The ISS was located over the Southern Indian Ocean at an altitude of 220 miles, with the astronaut observer most likely looking towards Antarctica (not visible) and the South Pole.
