young and old, close and far
Here’s a photo of the Three Sisters Volcanoes in Oregon –looking northward. The oldest volcano, North Sister, erupted more than 100,000 years ago and so is considered extinct. Because no lava has erupted there in so long, erosion has cut deeply into the volcano. By contrast, South Sister, the closest volcano on the left, most recently erupted only 2000 years ago and is much less eroded.
And then there are the stars –you can see the Big Dipper on the right side of the photo. The closest star in the Big Dipper is some 68 light years away.
