Astronauts in Maynard?

Okay, there aren't really astronauts in Maynard, but their photos are. Gallery Seven's current exhibit, "Windows on Earth" features photographs taken by astronauts from the International Space Station. Isn't that so cool.

Dan Barstow of Stow approached Gallery Seven with and idea. He helped to create the software "Windows on Earth" that allows astronauts to identify the targets they are photographing. He thought the images he had access to were beautiful and worth sharing.

For those of us who like a little perspective on our own lives, there's a cool shot of Massachusetts. There's even a great shot of P-Town. Each photo has a little bit of technical information about the piece of land, so you can learn a bit while appreciating the visual beauty.

"WINDOWS ON EARTH" Photographs by Astronauts on the International Space Station on display at Gallery Seven, 7 Nason St. in Maynard thru September 27th.  Opening Reception: Saturday, Sept. 6th from 7-9 p.m.  Free and Open to the public.  Gallery Hours: Tues. - Fri. 10-6 and Sat. 10-5.
