The Jellyfish Nebula - IC 443

"The Jellyfish Nebula is a Galactic supernova remnant (SNR) in the constellation Gemini. On the plan of the sky, it is located near the star Eta Geminorum. Its distance is roughly 5,000 light years from Earth.

IC 443 may be the remains of a supernova that occurred 3,000 - 30,000 years ago. The same supernova event likely created the neutron star CXOU J061705.3+222127, the collapsed remnant of the stellar core. IC 443 is one of the best-studied cases of supernova remnants interacting with surrounding molecular clouds.”

To answer your question: It’s a hand-crafted glass paperweight. There’s ash from the 1980 Mt. St. Helens eruption in it. Really, I have no idea what anyone needs a paperweight for these days, but look at it. #fireball #space

Created by Dave MacClean via the Centre of Geographic Studies in Nova Scotia, every indicator pin is color-coded pertaining to which astronaut took the photo (providing a link to the original image and tweet).

Logging more than 650 pictures shared with the twitter world from astronauts aboard the International Space Station, the interactive map also provides the real-time location of the ISS.

Keep in mind, you can track the ISS from wherever you are on this beautiful blue marble by inputting your place in space, or signing up to receive automatic updates for when/where to view the football field-sized space station pass overhead with NASA’s Spot The Station service!

Sh’yeah.
