Minor Astronomical Achievement

The other night I was lucky enough to catch the optical afterglow of a gamma-ray burst (GRB). You can see the meager tale unfold over at the Starhouse Blog on 4/17/06 and 4/18/06. There are only a handful of GRB’s which have been detected by amateurs. I was always hoping one would pop while I was at my observatory. Fun stuff!
