The Horsehead Nebula from Blue to Infrared
Image Credit & Copyright: Optical: Aldo Mottino & Carlos Colazo, OAC, Córdoba; Infrared: Hubble Legacy Archive
as posted verbatim from Astronomy Picture of the Day website:
Explanation: One of the most identifiable nebulae in the sky, the Horsehead Nebula in Orion, is part of a large, dark, molecular cloud. Also known as Barnard 33, the unusual shape was first discovered on a photographic plate in the late 1800s. The red glow originates from hydrogen gas predominantly behind the nebula, ionized by the nearby bright star Sigma Orionis. The darkness of the Horsehead is caused mostly by thick dust, although the lower part of the Horsehead's neck casts a shadow to the left. Streams of gas leaving the nebula are funneled by a strong magnetic field. Bright spots in the Horsehead Nebula's base are young stars just in the process of forming. Light takes about 1,500 years to reach us from the Horsehead Nebula. The above image is a digital combination of images taken in blue, green, red, and hydrogen-alpha light from the Argentina, and an image taken in infrared light by the orbiting Hubble Space Telescope.

“You tell me I can't fly, but then you watch me soar.”

Isn't It About Time ~ Stephen Stills and Manassas

Don't look now, don't heed the warning
It's really of no concern
Don't hear the sound, they're only just bombing
Anything left to burn

Isn't it about time
Isn't it about time we learned
Isn't it about time
Isn't it about time we learned

Fire, flood, familiar, famine
The jungle so far away
Blood baked into blackened soil
How many tons a day

Isn't it about time
Isn't it about time we learned
Isn't it about time
Isn't it about time we learned

Isn't it about time
Isn't it about time we learned
Isn't it about time
Isn't it about time we learned

Why, does it take so long
Is it easy not to care
Seems to me that enemies are fantasies
Somebody else's living nightmare

Who gonna live, who gonna die
Do you want to know
Does it give you a sense of power
To say yes or no

Isn't it about time
Isn't it about time we learned
Isn't it about time
Isn't it about time we learned

Isn't it about that time
Isn't it about time we learned
Isn't it about time
Isn't it about time we learned

Isn't it about time
Isn't it about time we learned
Isn't it about time
Isn't it about time we learned

Touch Me

"Yeah! Come on, come on, come on, come on
Now touch me, baby
Can't you see that I am not afraid?
What was that promise that you made?
Why won't you tell me what she said?
What was that promise that you made?

Now, I'm gonna love you
Till the heavens stop the rain
I'm gonna love you
Till the stars fall from the sky for you and I"

Rhinestone Eyes

"When the paralytic dreams that we all seem to keep
Drive on engines 'til they weep
With future pixels in factories far away


So call the mainland from the beach
All parties now washed up in bleach
The waves are rising for this time of year
And nobody knows what to do with the heat
Under sunshine pylons we'll meet
While rain is falling like rhinestones from the sky
"

The Sunset Itself


"And the sunset itself on such waves of ether
That I just can't comprehend
Whether it is the end of the day, the end of the world,
Or the mystery of mysteries in me again.” 
Anna Akhmatova
