The Antennae Galaxies
There are two small additions today. The first is a wonderful animation of the collision of the two galaxies that now form The Antennae. The animation shows how gas and stars ejected by the collision of the two galaxies helped to form what we now see when we look at The Antennae.

The other of today's additions is the slightly less prosaic figure of a green frog above a restaurant in Chicago. This, to my mind unappetising, restaurant figurine has been added to the Streetview Gallery.
