IR Exposures

Viewing images in infrared light offers depth and detail unseen in other photographic exposures. IR sensors are widely used in astronomy and are standard equipment on telescopes.

Two photographs show allow you to consider space and time from distant stars, galaxies, and nebulae as if you were a great cosmologist like Stephan Hawking. The massive James Webb telescope just completed its deployment and will produce even more remarkably detailed images well beyond what the Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes have captured.

It's time to ponder what may be coming. WHB
