Happy Chinese New Year

As many of you know, I’m currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Astronomy & Astrophysics at Academia Sinica in Taiwan. For the past year and half I’ve spent most of my time living and working in Taipei. Right now  in China and Taiwan, as well as  some other places around globe, people are celebrating the Chinese New Year (often referred to as the Spring Festival ), which is based on the lunar calendar. The celebration lasts in total 15 days, and it’s a time people gather and celebrate with family. Chinese New Year is in full swing, and as I’m writing this I can hear some fireworks being set off in the distance.

As part of the  festivities, ASIAA created a New Year’s greeting card. The director of ASIAA asked for images  and figures representing the range of research going on at the institute to use on the card. I send in images from Planet Four selected with some help from Planet Four Talk, and the images made the cut. Can you spot the two below?

For those celebrating, we wish you a Happy Chinese New Year and a happy and healthy year of the ram.

    I see 3 possible even though you said 2.

    I’m not sure what you think might be the third, but only definitely only 2 Planet Four images are on the greeting card.
