Bye Old Friend!

Hi Gang,
The decomissioning of the Hubble Space Telescope's Wide Field and Planetary Camera WFPC2 seems like saying bye to an old friend. This camera has given some of the most spectacular images to come from HST. It's final image is a treat to see. It is of the Planetary Nebula K4-55 and can be seen here [url=http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/releases/2009/21/]Final Image[/url] I, for one, will be very sorry to see it go!
John.
To me astronomy is looking up and thinking "What the heck is going on up there!!"
