This artist's impression shows the mysterious alignments between the spin axes of quasars and the large-scale structures they inhabit; these alignments are over billions of light-years and are the largest known in the Universe. Image credit: ESO / M. Kornmesser.
Cat's Eye Nebula ...Cosmos is a Greek word for the order of the universe. It is, in a way, the opposite of Chaos. It implies the deep interconnectedness of all things. It conveys awe for the intricate and subtle way in which the universe is put together by the hand of Almighty God.
The Black Eye Galaxy (also called Sleeping Beauty Galaxy; designated M64) absorbed a satellite galaxy that collided with it, perhaps more than one billion years ago. Active formation of new stars is occurring in the shear region where the oppositely rotating gases collide, are compressed, and contract. It is approximately 17 million light years from Earth. The inner region has a radius of only approximately 3,000 light-years, while the outer section extends another 40,000 light-years.
