Passions & Jupiter

This post has absolutely nothing to do with art, design, illustration or photography. Instead it is about cosmic impacts and having a passion. In case you haven't heard, a possible asteroid, about the size of the earth, crashed in Jupiter. And the person who discovered this incident? An amateur astronomer. Not NASA or any other professional organizational, but someone with a passion for astronomy and a large telescope in his backyard.
I found the man's story quite inspiring and was so impressed with his passion for his hobby. Obviously, not everyone's hobby pays off in such an unexpected way, but it illustrates the way that you can't stop yourself from pursuing your interests outside of work. You never know where it might lead.
