End of Term

This is just a quick note to say that I’ll be uploading a new Milton post soonish… it is the end of term here, which means that Time is thieving quite a bit whilst on the wing.

In the meantime, I did manage to finally take a new astrophotograph for that neglected section of this rather eclectic blog – it is the image of the Sun taken on 11 May.

Viewing the sun through H-alpha (the hydrogen-alpha spectrum) always makes me think of William Blake:

“When the sun rises, do you not see a round disc of fire somewhat like a guinea?” O no, no, I see an innumerable company of the heavenly host crying “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty.” A Vision of the Last Judgement (1810).
