Space Saturday II

I know it is Wednesday, but I was busy this weekend. So for the next few seconds, pretend it is Saturday again…

I was going to post a picture of the Shuttle leftoff, but since this is Saturday, it hasn’t happened yet. I bring you this instead:

The Great Orion Nebula (or M42) near the sword of the constellation Orion has always been one of my favorites. In that nebula is an open cluster of stars called the Trapezium. This week’s Space Saturday image is of this region in the Orion Nebula.

This region includes many areas where gasses are “globbing” together in the “birthing” stages of stellar (planetary) systems called Proplyds.

I think this is such a beautiful region in such a beautiful nebula that I think is also extremely interesting! Enjoy!
So have a happy… Saturday!

Ή χάρις του κυρίου ημων Ίησου Χριστου μεθ’ υμων.

    The font is called “Chiller” and I just found it in Word. If you don’t have it, I found it for download here.

    I can’t say I have seen the show “Dead Like Me”, any good?

    Glad you liked the nebula. :)
