Palomar Planet VB10b makes APOD & Dedication Day!

You saw it here first, but VB10b, the latest exoplanet discovered at Palomar Observatory, is today's Astronomy Picture of the Day. Be sure to click on over, because APOD always has cool links for you to explore.

By the way, today is also the 61st anniversary of the dedication of the 200-inch Telescope. It was a magical day, but the real magic happens each and every clear night at Palomar as the Hale Telescope and the others here continue our mission of astronomical research as we turn starlight into knowledge.
