Can we just take a minute to bask in that name? The Majestic Sombrero Galaxy. I know they don't name Galaxies the way people name planets (I'm not sure we even name planets like that anymore). Frequently they get named for the constellation they're in, or other identifying factors. But not that beauty up there. Nope, it's known as The Majestic Sombrero.
If you happen to be interested, it was discovered by this guy on May 11, 1781. It's apparently possible to see it using an amateur telescope, which makes me want to drag the telescope back on the deck and look. I don't do this, because there's a high-school behind my house, the parking lot of which apparently needs to be visible from space, and I grew up in the mid-west where you don't borrow other people's fields without permission.
But somewhere, over our heads tonight, there is a Majestic Sombrero. I'm pretty okay with that.
