Tycho Brahe, the scandalous astronomer - Dan Wenkel Tycho Brahe abandoned his island observatories in 1597 and left the country after he fell out of favor with the new Danish King Christian IV. Shortly after Tycho’s death in 1601, the Uraniborg castle-observatory and nearby underground Stjerneborg observatory were both completely destroyed.

Selections from my blog mrdiv.tumblr.com retro_break january 22, 2012 Jason Lee Creatively Captures His Kids If there was a prize that could be given out to the most creative father, I'd hope that it was awarded to Jason Lee. A wedding photographer by day, he's used to capturing some of the most important moments in a couple's lives.

It's when he puts his own spin on their everyday moments that we not only get to experience our own childhood again, we're able to see a father's pride shine through.
