Alert: Free Nerdy Swag!

Hear ye, hear ye. I have Nerdy Cassini Swag to give away!

Saturn and Our Pale Blue Orb


I have been sent a number of 8.5"x11" lithographs of this amazing composite panorama of Saturn & its rings, so I thought it might be time to do another random mailing to DW & LJ friends who would like one. The image is so titled because you can see the Earth peeping out next to the narrow, solitary G ring on the left side. It's a stunning construction, as described on the back:

"The panoramic view was created by combining 165 images taken by the Cassini wide-angle camera over nearly three hours on September 15, 2006...Ultraviolet, infrared and clear-filter images were digitally composited, then adjusted to resemble natural colour."

To (potentially) receive a copy, just answer this poll.
