This is the first picture that we got from our CCD deep space camera. Were we ever lucky! We pointed and we shot, and this is what came out. It’s a gas cloud, about 5,000 light years away. Its connection to a swan is not clear, except that we have found that many preschoolers can see the resemblance right away, while older people miss it.
