Picture of the day

What is this? It's the first photo of an alien planet ever taken! Ok, it's the "the first direct image of a planet orbiting a sun-like star taken using a ground-based telescope" if you want to be a killjoy about it. But still, pretty cool, no?

No? It's too blurry for you? You, with your precious fetish for pretty Hubble photos. "Show me a photo of this planet when you can get a cool close up, like with Saturn or something" I bet you're saying. Fuck you, learn to appreciate other mysteries of the universe.

Fine fine, you complete baby. Here's the pretty.

It's a boring old nebula. God I hate you.
