The newest blog post (address below my signature) has a little children's story based on a common question when we have children looking at the heavens. A sketch of M77 is at the end. There is religious content. Enjoy if you want.

Thanks Tom and Frank. I always learn a lot doing this kind of thing around teachers and students. If there is one story there is a hundred like this.
