Long before the diagnosis,
in many places we live,
are the families with illness.
Prayers for those who are terminal.
Hard to deal with, head on.
We want to be positive.
In reality, there isn't a safe place.
Just a place to go and hide.
Nothing changes, as death chases,
us down the pathway of life.

NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day:

Former darling of the northern sky Comet C/2022E3 (ZTF) has faded. During its closest approach to our fair planet in early February Comet ZTF was a mere 2.3 light-minutes distant. Then known as the green comet, this visitor from the remote Oort Cloud is now nearly 13.3 light-minutes away. In this deep image, composed of exposures captured on March 21, the comet still sports a broad, whitish dust tail and greenish tinted coma though. Not far on the sky from Orion's bright star Rigel, Comet ZTF shares the field of view with faint, dusty nebulae and distant background galaxies. The telephoto frame is crowded with Milky Way stars toward the constellation Eridanus. The influence of Jupiter's gravity on the comet's orbit as ZTF headed for the inner solar system, may have set the comet on an outbound journey, never to return.

NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day:

A mere 46 million light-years distant, spiral galaxy NGC 2841 can be found in planet Earth's night sky toward the northern constellation of Ursa Major. This sharp image centered on the gorgeous island universe also captures spiky foreground Milky Way stars and more distant background galaxies within the same telescopic field of view. It shows off the bright nucleus of NGC 2841, along with its inclined galactic disk, and faint outer regions. Dust lanes, small star-forming regions, and young star clusters are embedded in the galaxy's patchy, tightly wound spiral arms. In contrast, many other spirals exhibit broader, sweeping arms with large star-forming regions. NGC 2841 has a diameter of over 150,000 light-years, making it even larger than our own Milky Way. X-ray images suggest that extreme outflows from giant stars and stellar explosions create plumes of hot gas extending into a halo around NGC 2841.

Across our broad galaxy,
soaring into outer space,
the thrust of rockets firing,
brings a smile to my face.

A celestial race,
to planets and stars,
on this long journey,
to the "Red" planet, Mars.

Is this the answer,
to our climate woes,
leaving the earth,
struggling with death throws?

Climate changes,
we must fight,
by replacing pollution,
bringing back the light.
