star gazing

I was a bit distracted this week.  Everyone's done such pretty pictures of people looking at stars.

I was thinking of star gazers as amateur astronomers.  So I decided to do a nerdy picture about their modern counterpart - people who use their idle computers to search databases for stars and things.  Last week I read about how the  Einstein@Home project published a paper announcing their first discovery of a radio pulsar.
