What is that?!

((You are supposed to guess!))

And @susanmagnolia can’t guess, because they were in the room, even though they probably already forgot… :slight_smile:

The planet mars trying it’s hand at being a frisbee. :wink:

Every couple of days I will “zoom out” (which actually requires multiple cameras).


Mint candy?

I tried zooming out from 250x to 100x, and there wasn’t much difference, so instead I switched to a non-microsopic camera, and produced the next image…

What is that?

((The lines were from two zeros next to each other!))

I find it fascinating, and wonder if in time I may learn how microscopic materials look and begin to recognize them for what they are. In the meantime, let’s see what else I have to microphoto…
