Howard Trottier's photo of the Horsehead Nebula

April 13, 2011

Howard Trottier missed the celebrations last New Year's Eve as he stayed in his observatory in the South Okanagan to record this image of the Horsehead Nebula on the one clear night of his vacation.  This astro-image was published in the May/June 2011 issue of SkyNews, the Canadian magazine of astronomy and stargazing.  For more information, check out
