Thank you for supporting this wiki project
This is a close-up of Sirius, the brightest star in the sky. When taking a photo of this star its own bright makes difficult to observe nearby stars in the field. The diffraction spikes almost reach the limits of the field. Jason Higley explains this way the picture:

"There were a number of processing things I experimented with to try to handle the noise, but all of them took away from the raw power of Sirius, so I just decided to only crop as much vignetting as possible and left it full-size with all it's defects but preserving the blinding star and it's beautiful color. Two 15 second exposures stacked using a Canon Powershot SX100 at ISO 1600, afocally mounted at a 26mm EP via a 6" Criterion RV-6 telescope."

In 2005, in response to EA Sports' exlivscue license with the National Football League and ESPN, Take-Two Interactive signed an exlivscue third-party licensing contract with Major League Baseball (MLB), MLBPA and MLBAM to produce MLB games. The agreement, which runs from Spring 2006 to 2012, allows for the console manufacturers Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo to produce MLB titles for their respective platforms, but bars third party developers such as EA Sports from continuing or developing their own MLB games. As a result, the MVP Baseball series featured college baseball, with MVP 06 NCAA Baseball having been released in late January 2006, and MVP 07: NCAA Baseball in February 2007. However, the college baseball game did not fare well, and was not produced after 2007. So, in 2012, EA Sports can release another baseball game.

Your lucky you are getting 46 or 47 miles of EV Range on a sinlge charge. And it's only 47 degrees. You usually only expect this type of weather when it's 60 or 70 outside, spring or a mild summer. Remember, the Volt is a plug-in hybrid. Therefore it may use gas sometimes, even when it still has EV miles left. This could be for conditioning purposes, low temperatures, etc. Btw, I am also a member of the Volt site. Just wanted to clarify Trust me, I want to use minimal gas and hopefully no gas, since my commute is less than 40mi (usually around 35), and I have access to a 110v outlet at work.
