BC Questions and "The Eye of God"

Hey everyone
Quick question for all you Vancouver, BC, people. What touristy stuff is there to see...besides your houses?

Also, I just got this email with this cool picture attached. Hubble Telescope took this picture. Its appropriately titled "The Eye of God". Here it is:

This thing is so cool! Anyways, please comment and give me input on BC stuff and this picture.

There's a really big fair going on at PNE, somewhere we should've gone to for our reunion. Nice picture by the way, is it a nebula?

thanks for the input! We're leaving in about 30 minutes, so we'll try to incorporate some of these into our plans!

I presume this is a nebula of some sort...or it might just be a photoshop-ed picture of a realy nebule/galaxy.

Yah . . . I was gonna say, it looks like someone did at least a bit've touch-up w/ Photoshop. But then again, considering some of the other stuff we've gotten back from the HST . . . you never know

Hey Kunal,

10x for setting up this forum.

Nice to see the official simuw website has a big link pointing this way.

I hope BC was fun.
My take on the picture, is that it's a blue eye superimposed on a picture of white dots of varying size on a black background. Oh yeah and then there's the flame-like special effects trailing off at the edges. Galaxies pishaaa....You can't even see the big dipper, therefore it's not the sky....

By the way, I never really heard how your first reunion was? anyone care to enlighten me...i know there were no TACs arounds and you guys probably made the best of the opportunity and went all out and hit the first bookstore on the way and rampaged through the bookstacks and enraged the referrence librarians with your knowledge but....

The first reunion was fun. We visited Bellevue Square and the adjoining park, and we went to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner. It was basically the Seattle area people + Daniel (who was also in Seattle at the time).
