Hubble's Next Discovery - You Decide!

So, in case you don't know, 2009 is the International Year of Astronomy! (Yay!) As a special event commemorating this year, there's a neat "contest" that NASA is holding to decide the next object it will look at! (Though I wonder how well this is going to go over, if Hubble is still the walking orbiting dead...) But anyway, you can choose from a list of objects Hubble has never observed before and enter a drawing for one of 100 new Hubble pictures of the winning object. Vote by March 1st!

As a side note, one of the postdocs claims that at least one of the targets has been observed before, but I suppose it really doesn't matter all that much in the end. ^^;
