In 1916, Einstein published the general theory of relativity, which held that acceleration distorts the shape of time and space. In a nutshell, space and time are curved near a massive object — the fabric of space-time is distorted

Very Nice Zach!

However, your image will not be included in the poll. You won the 1st quarter and we limit one WOF win annually per person.

Re: July 2017 Astrophotography Contest

No, don't delete your image.

I used to allow previous winners to be in the polls, and give the runner up the prize. I think it's better to not include winners in the polls, just because if they are second it's not the same as winning.

I know it sucks to have to wait a year to reset, but, I think it's only fair so more people have a chance to win.

Thanks Zach!
