Day 3

Today I learned a lot more about planetary nebulae, what they are, how they form, etc. . . Also, I began to collect images of nebulae at different wavelengths, so that I can combine them into one image and manipulate the image so that the nebula is visible. The next step is to create circular and elliptical regions on the image around the star's center and nebula, and to create an annulus region around the whole thing for a sample of the space around it. Cant wait for monday!
