After a whole year of work (really hard this one), now is time to rest and relax.
So, yesterday I went with some friends to Serra do Alvão, Vila Real (Portugal), and we started to watch the night sky and some astronomical objects with telescopes.
I don't have a telescope. So, I took some pictures and, for the first time, I captured Andromeda's Galaxy.
The result is three pictures combined as one.
Have a nice summer time.

(Phys.org) —Physicist James Franson of the University of Maryland has captured the attention of the physics community by posting an article to the peer-reviewed New Journal of Physics in which he claims to have found evidence that suggests the speed of light as described by the theory of general relativity, is actually slower than has been thought.
