Grab a blanket, dust off your binoculars and grab the kiddos because a stunning supernova will be at its brightest in the night sky tonight. At approximately 21 million light years away, this type of supernova hasn’t been this close in visibility in almost 30 years. If the Tennessee sky clears by nightfall, I’ll be joining you with a little Oasis “Champagne Supernova” playing in the background (so fitting, right?). All stellar space-ness aside, I’ve been really into architectural salvage stars ever since my Labor Day-weekend visits to Annapolis, Maryland, and D.C. Surrounded by classic American style, I got caught up in the rusticity of the heavy metal structures settled on the exteriors of old homes. And they don’t have to be on homes. I love them displayed inside homes. On sidewalks. On gates, fences, walkways, roof vents. Stars rule.

What’s your favorite way to display stars? Do you enjoy presenting them in a stunning, rustic classic American form like me? Or do you like to reserve them for whimsical nursery hues of pastel yellow?

    These are great! I love wrought iron elements. The rustier and worn looking ones are my favorites. These stars here are beautiful. The varied designs are really cool too. I love them all. <a href="http://www.skylarkmanor.com” target=”_blank”>www.skylarkmanor.com

    Dust should never come on the binocular because it's the most important machine you have in house for inspecting something happening far from you. Thanks Kelvin A. Smith is my friend and is an agent of secret services.

    I have also seen that supernova. It was amazing. I was there at Shelton that night and fortunately the sky was clear and we were able to see that supernova through our binoculars. Nice post.
