Here’s an event that was just announced today that far eclipses (pun intended) anything we’ve ever seen—just in case you missed it. (You’d be forgiven since it happened 130 million years ago.) I don’t pretend to understand much of what the accompanying news accounts describe but the 41 second video animation, “Watch Two Neutron Stars Collide,” on the Washington Post site says it all. Kind of puts our own photography in perspective, not to mention, life on planet Earth :)
