We are waiting for materials to arrive so we can resume work on the observatory.
So here is a macro I took of some cool lichen . Lichen is a symbiotic plant composed of a fungus and alga , combining to form a dual plant . There is beauty in all Nature .

I cannot take credit for this photo . It is such an awesome feature of Mars that I have to pass it on.
This volcano is 374 miles in diameter and almost 16 miles high. Mount Everest is about 6 miles high and the state of Arizona is about 370 miles in diameter.
Truly an amazing geologic formation on any planet !!!!!
