Stuck in the Stars

In the ways of the man upon the Earth, I stand tall with me and myself to fight malevolence amongst the cosmos and nebulas for the continuum of the Universe. Creative Commons License

Butterfly Nebula from Upgraded Hubble

Distance: 4,000 light years away

The bright clusters and nebulae of planet Earth’s night sky are often named for flowers or insects, and NGC 6302 is no exception. With an estimated surface temperature of about 250,000 degrees C, the central star of this particular planetary nebula is exceptionally hot though — shining brightly in ultraviolet light but hidden from direct view by a dense torus of dust. This dramatically detailed close-up of the dying star’s nebula was recorded by the upgraded Hubble Space Telescope.

Eastern Veil

Distance: 2,600 light years away

The Eastern Veil (NGC 6992) is a supernova remnant that is part of a larger complex that includes the Western Veil (NGC 6960).  It is estimated that the supernova explosion occured about 10,000 years ago, before the age of recorded history.  During a star’s life, nuclear fusion produces elements such as oxygen, silicon, carbon, and iron.  These elements are expelled into space during supernova explosions, later to become part of other stars, planets, and lifeforms like ourselves.
