It’s not WHAT you say, but how you say it

I just saw this pic from some work Mike Brown has been doing on Uranus (as well as Neptune and other things) and it’s pretty friggin amazing!

Those rings may be circling Uranus, but they're not looking for Klingons.

This is an IR image form the Keck telescope in Hawaii and the idea that so much can be seen from behind our atmosphere is totally astounding. Those bright spots on the surface are storms and the other spots are moons. The visibility of the rings is pretty intense too! All science aside, it’s nice to see a fresh pic of Uranus and simply enjoy it for what it is.

As an aside, I know a lot of people are all pissed off at Mike Brown over the whole Pluto thing, but seriously, it was the right call.
