I'm Nathan. 21, Ravenclaw, taken, straight, proud to be god-free, physics major, web designer, wannabe game designer. Let's be friends.

I run The-Minecraft-Blog.

Things I post include (but are not limited to): Gaming, anime, landscapes, architecture, gifs, hardcore music and chiptunes, Pokémon, funny stuff, stupid text posts, and whatever else strikes my fancy.

Galactic Center by Drew Medlin
Drew Medlin captured this photo of the Galactic Center on September 18, 2009.

“That photo was (taken) in the Atacama desert near San Pedro de Atacama, Chile on 2009.09.18. I used a Canon 5D Mark II at ISO1600 and a Sigma 50mm lens at f/4. A Takahashi EM-200 mount I rented time on from SPACE (spaceobs.com) provided the tracking. This is a stack of three 1.5-min and three 2-min exposures. Processed with Lightroom and Photoshop.”

The Galactic Center is the rotational center of the Milky Way galaxy located 26,000 light years from the Earth. It was confirmed recently by the researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Germany that there exists a supermassive black hole at the galactic center. The observation was made using the 3.5m New Technology Telescope and the 8.2m Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile.
