The Bubble Nebula's Ever Changing Story

The Bubble Nebula, possibly being assaulted from the right by a giant molecular cloud which appear to be female, in fact two females (at least), both Scorpio and Gemini astrologically.  Beautiful, Dangerous, and High Maintenance all at the same time, Mr Bubble will need to keep his focus to remain undaunted by these femme fatales.

Is the bubble trying to flee this formidable feline force, or is it about to embark on a retaliation of its own?  It seems the jury is out.

I see many other entities and personalities in the surrounding whisps and objects contained within the frame.

I wish I'd have painted this.

Do I really need to say Click the Pic .


  1. The TEXT Found Wen You CLICK on the PICTURE

    "It's the bubble versus the cloud. NGC 7635, the Bubble Nebula, is being pushed out by the stellar wind of massive star BD+602522, visible in blue toward the right, inside the nebula. Next door, though, lives a giant molecular cloud, visible to the far right in red. At this place in space, an irresistible force meets an immovable object in an interesting way. The cloud is able to contain the expansion of the bubble gas, but gets blasted by the hot radiation from the bubble's central star. The radiation heats up dense regions of the molecular cloud causing it to glow. The Bubble Nebula, pictured here is about 10 light-years across and part of a much larger complex of stars and shells. The Bubble Nebula can be seen with a small telescope towards the constellation of the Queen of Aethiopia (Cassiopeia)".

  2. Looks sort of like a FACE –– possibly reptilian –– staring straight us.

    It's not, of course, but it's fun to use the imagination.

  3. If you insist on assigning sexes to a collection of random atoms in space, it looks like poor Mr. Bubble is caught up in a hypertorsional anti-harvey field. An anti-rose wave should follow shortly ;)

  4. BTW I think the bubble looks like a seal.

    1. Cube, in my mind's eye, I definitely see a female with very red shiny lipstick to the right of the bubble image. At first encountering this image I was thing the bubble was either a constructing or deconstructing terminator character. fwiw.
