A Fire in Space?

Postby jsc248 » Sun Sep 06, 2015 7:07 pm

Hi Gang,

Is it just me or does this image http://www.esa.int/spaceinimages/Images/2015/08/Feathery_filaments_in_Mon_R2 Of the nebula Mon R2 look like some kind of wild fire in space? The nebula is 2700 light years away and is studded with hot new stars as shown in this image from the Herscel observatory.

To me astronomy is looking up and thinking "What the heck is going on up there!!"
