Astronomy Tuesday



The Iris nebula, glowing bright blue in the midst of a cloud of dust. I am reminded of returning from Iceland to find that the crew renovating my bathroom had apparently never heard of plastic dropcloths and my apartment resembled Pompeii before the lava arrived.

But at least this dust has that one bright blue star in the center, sparking off all the dust around it, to magnificent effect.
