Compositing issue aside, that's a Hell of an image (pun intended). :-)
 
#Sagittarius   #WR124     #Sauron  

This is a Hubble Space photo of a highly energetic rare breed of star named WR124. This star is located 15,000 miles away in the constellation Sagittarius. WR124 is the tiny white ball in the center of the photo, and is ejecting hot gas away from itself at speeds of 100,000 miles per hour.

WR124 is known as a Wolf-Rayet star. These stars are extremely rare and short lived (The nebula surrounding WR124 is estimated to be a mere 10,000 years old), have temperatures of upwards of 50,000 kelvin, and are characterized by violent transitional phases involving the violent ejection of mass into space. 

Basically, when lord Sauron came back from the shadow, he came back by manifesting the power of a Wolf-Rayet star.

My kind of artwork. :-)
 
Hey guys, thought you might be interested in another design I made. Any feedback would be much appreciated - I'm trying to use money from these designs to supplement my very limited student income hahah. :)

You can get it on t-shirts, posters, hoodies, mugs, stickers, cards, throw pillows, and way way more. Even if you're not interested in buying, I'd really appreciate any shares, +1s, etc, as it all goes a long way to helping me out :)

Thank you so much :D

NGC 2440

NGC 2440 is another planetary nebula ejected by a dying star, but it has a much more chaotic structure than NGC 2346. The central star of NGC 2440 is one of the hottest known, with a surface temperature near 200,000 degrees Celsius. The complex structure of the surrounding nebula suggests to some astronomers that there have been periodic oppositely directed outflows from the central star, somewhat similar to that in NGC2346, but in the case of NGC 2440 these outflows have been episodic, and in different directions during each episode. The nebula is also rich in clouds of dust, some of which form long, dark streaks pointing away fromthe central star. In addition to the bright nebula, which glows becauseof fluorescence due to ultraviolet radiation from the hot star, NGC 2440 is surrounded by a much larger cloud of cooler gas which is invisible in ordinary light but can be detected with infrared telescopes. NGC 2440 lies about 4,000 light-years from Earth in thedirection of the constellation Puppis.

The Hubble Heritage team made this image from observations of NGC 2440acquired by Howard Bond (STScI) and Robin Ciardullo (Penn State).

There's a good one. Gotta love the Hubble. :-)
 
#AntennaeGalaxies  

This is a photo taken by the Hubble Space Telescope of the pair of galaxies NGC 4038 and NGC 4039, otherwise known as the "Antennae Galaxies."

Once upon a time, these two galaxies were normal everyday spiral galaxies like the Milky Way, but over the last few hundred million years, they have been spending their time smashing into each other. Their collision is so violent, that stars are being ripped from their host galaxies forming a connecting arc between the two resembling antennae.

These galaxies are said to be in a state of "starburst", meaning that all available gasses in these galaxies are being used to form stars at an incredibly fast rate. These clouds of gas can be seen as bright pink or red, and surround the blue star-forming regions.

Eventually the nuclei of these galaxies will combine, and will form one  large elliptical galaxy.

At first, I had a very poor experience with a seemingly uncaring and bureaucratic agency. Then some good people who work at Austin Energy stepped up and took care of my issue. So there are good people there, and I'll adjust my rating accordingly.

I called at 10 AM. They said they'd be along between 5 and 7 PM. I called again at 6:30 PM. They said they'd be along between 7:30 and 8 PM. Now it's just about 9 PM, and I haven't seen or heard from them. And now I'm calling someone else. Get service anywhere else.

I ordered a pizza. The driver took it somewhere else and tried to give me someone else's pizza. Then he went and got my pizza (which had been in the hands of someone else, of course). I refused that, since who knows what may have been done to it. Then I called the store to reverse my credit card transaction. I waited on hold for 10 minutes and 53 seconds, only to have the phone system disconnect me. In the next call, I got someone who was clearly not too versed on the system. Who knows whether the transaction was actually reversed? So now I'll have to watch my credit card account for a couple days. Given that delivering the right pizza to the right address is more than they can do, I can find somewhere else to buy a pizza.
