eyes & nebulas

This is the Andromeda galaxy!  It is the furthest thing away from Earth that can still be seen with the naked eye on a clear night.  It is 2.3 million light years away from us.  The galaxy used to be called the ‘Great Andromeda Nebula’, since they thought that is was a bunch of glowing gases, or a solar system in formation.  The Andromeda galaxy is a major galaxy, and is slightly bigger than our Milky Way.  So spectacular.

@pangur-and-grim aaa I saw ppl were showing you their cats so here’s my Isabell!! She’s a ten yr old rescue cat that I got when she was barely 8 weeks old. Big grumpy girl that loves cuddles but she’s a binch since I feed her separately from the other cats mostly she’s sometimes able to trick my mom into giving her a second can

She’s such a spoiled brat I luv her :’^)

To some, it may look like a cat’s eye. Thealluring Cat’s Eye nebula, however, lies three thousand light-years from Earth across interstellar space. A classic planetary nebula, the Cat’s Eye (NGC 6543) represents a final, brief yet glorious phase in the life of a sun-like star. This nebula’s dying central star may have produced the simple, outer pattern of dustyconcentric shells by shrugging off outer layersin a series of regular convulsions. But the formation of the beautiful, more complex inner structures is not well understood. Seen so clearly in this digitally reprocessed HubbleSpace Telescope image, the truly cosmic eye is over half a light-year across. Of course, gazing into this Cat’s Eye, astronomers may well be seeing the fate of our sun, destined to enter its own planetary nebula phase of evolution … in about 5 billion years.
