This planetary nebula, Mz3, is being cast off by a star similar to our Sun.  The 1000-kilometer per second speed of the expelled gas, the light-year long length of the structure, and the magnetism of the star visible at the nebula's center, all imply  Mz3 is hiding a second, dimmer star that orbits close in to the bright star. A competing hypothesis holds that the central star's own spin and magnetic field are channeling the gas. (ESA, NASA's Hubble, JPL-CalTech)

"Your soul is not a passive or a theoretical entity that occupies a space in the vicinity of your chest cavity. It is a positive, purposeful force at the core of your being. It is that part of you that understands the impersonal nature of the energy dynamics in which you are involved, that loves without restriction and accepts without judgment." -Gary Zukav

Your soul is not a passive or a theoretical entity that occupies a space in the vicinity of your chest cavity. It is a very positive, purposeful force at the core of your being. It is that part of you that understands the impersonal nature of the energy

Kappa Cassiopeiae - A Runaway Variable Supergaint Star Approximately 4000 away from earth in the constellation Cassiopeia there is a Variable Blue Supergaint Star known as Kappa Cassiopeiae. This Star.

Enormous Solar Eruption A coronal mass ejection (CME) erupted from just around the edge of the sun on May in a gigantic rolling wave. CMEs can shoot over a billion tons of particles into space at over a million miles per hour.

NGC 253 ~ The "Silver Dollar" galaxy as an anaglyph 3D

NGC 253 aka the “Silver Dollar” galaxy as an anaglyph It is more than 11 million light-years away in the southern constellation of Sculptor. It is one of the brightest galaxies in the sky.

She says nothing at all, but simply stares upward into the dark sky and watches, with sad eyes, the slow dance of the infinite stars.
