#Orion | this image shows in detail the intricacies of the nebula nearest the sun. It is a #diffusenebula situated south of the Belt of the #ConstellationOrion. It is one of the brightest nebulae and can be observed with the naked eye in the night sky. It is located about 1,500 light years from #Earth and has a diameter of about 24 light years. #M43, also called (#NebulaNGC #DeMairan and #1982) is an H II region.
The Big red eye of the #HelixNebula in Infrared Part 2 | the nebula's central star itself is immersed in a surprisingly bright infrared glow. Models suggest the glow is produced by a dust debris disk. Even though the #nebular material was ejected from the star many thousands of years ago, the close-in dust could have been generated by collisions in a reservoir of objects analogous to our own #solarsystem's #KuiperBelt or #CometaryOortCloud.
A different kind of LODESTAR teaser. If you've read the description of the book, you may have noticed that the plot says it focuses on a very important new symbol--and this is the symbol! You'll have to read the book to find out who or what it means/represents.
Obama is full of himself! And, I've seen some info on what's going on in Russia & abroad. Like the Iranian ships being strategically placed. Have you? There so much to comment on! But, I was just distracted by a video that came out at a Clinton fundraiser discussing the 2nd Amendment & taking our guns via "executive order"!!
