I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Astronomy Tuesday

We saw this nebula last week, hanging out over the Pleiades -- NGC 1499, the California Nebula.

As usual with nebulae, I don't think it bears much resemblance to its namesake. But those ripples of bright gas do remind me of waves rolling in on the beach, which might as well be a beach in California.
