    NASA Goddard Photo and Video Escuta, Amor Eu e tu declarámos o fim de todas as fronteiras e inseparámo-nos. Agora, somos uma única rocha, uma única montanha, somos uma gota que cai eternamente do céu, somos um fruto, somos uma casa, um mundo completo. De José Luís Peixoto, in 'Abraço'

    What resembles dainty butterfly wings are actually roiling cauldrons of gas heated to more than 36,000 degrees Fahrenheit. A dying star that was once about five times the mass of the sun is at the center of this fury. It has ejected its envelope of gases and is now unleashing a stream of ultraviolet radiation that is making the cast-off material glow.

  • Terrie Tays-Gamino

    Bright clusters & nebulae of planet Earth's night sky are often named for flowers or insects. Though its wingspan covers over 3 light-years, NGC 6302 is no exception. This sharp and colorful close-up of the dying star's nebula was recorded in 2009 by the Hubble Space Telescope's Wide Field Camera 3. The Butterfly Nebula is about 4,000 light-years away in the constellation of the Scorpion (Scorpius)

    Butterfly Nebula This mind-blowing photograph, taken from the Hubble Telescope, shows the death throes of a star, exploding with two gargantuan lobes of hot gas and debris. The dying star would have once have been fives times the size of our sun, and the resulting explosion has created one of the hottest places in the galaxy at just under 20,000 degrees Celsius. "Be humble, for you are made of earth. Be noble, for you are made of stars." -- Slavic saying

NGC 6302 (also called the Bug Nebula, Butterfly Nebula, or Caldwell 69) is a bipolar planetary nebula in the constellation Scorpius. The structure in the nebula is among the most complex ever observed in planetary nebulae. The spectrum of NGC 6302 shows that its central star is one of the hottest stars in the galaxy, with a surface temperature in excess of 200,000 K, implying that the star from which it formed must have been very large.

The Butterfly Nebula - NGC 6302 (also called the Bug Nebula, Butterfly Nebula, or Caldwell 69) is a bipolar planetary nebula in the constellation Scorpius. The structure in the nebula is among the most complex ever observed in planetary nebulae.

NGC 6302 (The Butterfly Nebula): With an estimated surface temperature of about 250,000 degrees C, the central star of this particular planetary nebula is exceptionally hot -- 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 newly upgraded Hubble Space Telescope. Credit: NASA, ESA, and the Hubble SM4 ERO Team

#Nebula #universe This is what is beyond our planet, a masterpiece, created by, a Master. We are given life by the very same Master.

Our eyes are as beautiful as the galactic nebulae. We're part of the universe as much as the universe is part of us.
