Lions, Tigers, Centaurs, Dancing Goats with Cat Faces, Liberal Heads Exploding, ..

Cute Kitties, Sharks, Clowns, Birds, Sea Lions, Foxes, Terriers, Beagles, Eagles... We got it all right here.

No Charge.

Read More about the Eagle Nebula, and click there to get the high resolution version image.....


  1. I see a squirrel carrying it's therapy pet ferret in the foreground being chased by a giant space Tardigrade in the background. Or maybe it looks like pedophile Joe Biden rubbing the shoulders of an illegal immigrant child? Depends on how much you squint...

    1. Mr Blade, I failed to link the image to the APOD site. I have corrected that and profusely apologize just like Nana pelosi does almost every day to DJ Trump.

      You won't have to squint so much wit da bigger pics.

      In the meantime I will study the image further.

    2. DaBlade,
      I see a squirrel carrying it's therapy pet ferret in the foreground

      That's what I see, too!

  2. BRRRRRRRRRRR! That doesnt look like any eagle I've ever seen. It looks more like a Gestapo Agent rounding up Jews, or the KGB coming after Dissenters –– or maybe the Londonistan Police ganging up on Tommy Robinson for daring to raise his sweet nativist voice against the official British defence of child rapists and murderers.

    Whatever it is it looks like a THREATENING MONSTER.

    1. FT, In that case it was all ejected at least temporarily from the bowels of hell just like the clintons. Be careful when you fly past this area of space.

    2. It does have a TURD-LIKE aspect come to think of it, Kid.



  3. _________ O What Is That Sound __________
    O what is that sound which so thrills the ear
    Down in the valley drumming, drumming?
    Only the scarlet soldiers, dear,
    The soldiers coming.

    O what is that light I see flashing so clear
    Over the distance brightly, brightly?
    Only the sun on their weapons, dear,
    As they step lightly.

    O what are they doing with all that gear,
    What are they doing this morning, morning?
    Only their usual manoeuvres, dear,
    Or perhaps a warning.

    O why have they left the road down there,
    Why are they suddenly wheeling, wheeling?
    Perhaps a change in their orders, dear,
    Why are you kneeling?

    O haven't they stopped for the doctor's care,
    Haven't they reined their horses, horses?
    Why, they are none of them wounded, dear,
    None of these forces.

    O is it the parson they want, with white hair,
    Is it the parson, is it, is it?
    No, they are passing his gateway, dear,
    Without a visit.

    O it must be the farmer that lives so near.
    It must be the farmer so cunning, so cunning?
    They have passed the farmyard already, dear,
    And now they are running.

    O where are you going? Stay with me here!
    Were the vows you swore deceiving, deceiving?
    No, I promised to love you, dear,
    But I must be leaving.

    O it's broken the lock and splintered the door,
    O it's the gate where they're turning, turning;
    Their boots are heavy on the floor
    And their eyes are burning.

    WH Auden (1907-1973)

    1. Now change that slightly to "O what is that Thing that lurks in Space?, and you'll have a good idea of how that Eagle Nebula makes me feel.



    2. FT, Since we live in interesting times, sadly, I see no reassuring posts on the immediate horizon. I've been wrong before though !

    3. Things always go in cycles, kid. Humanity has a nasty, very depressing habit of shooting itself in the foot every so often. Knocks everything off kilter, creates a lot of wreckage, a lot of bloodshed, and much need for repair. Definitely retards REAL progress.

      It's very hard for any civikizatiin to survive its fools forever.

  4. I must be slightly insane...I take one look at the figures in that picture, (whatever the heck they are, I STILL don't get it!!!) and I immediately think "WE THREE KINGS OF ORIENT ARE..." :-) HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    1. Z, How about Three Coins In the Fountain !

  5. Oh...and I think DaBlade needs help :-)!!!!!!!!

  6. NOW you figured that out? HAHA!

    1. HA! Yes, and looking at the image again and my comment, I think I NEED HELP, too!

    1. Odie, damn right it's like going to the zoo. Going to DC is also like going to the zoo, but not nearly as satisfying.

    2. AOW, glad you liked it. :)

  8. Sure looks interesting, but not sure if i want to visit!! Let me know how it goes.... :)

    1. Bunk, I'm sending Al Gore. I wonder if he'll be honest when he gets back?


  9. I’m so pissed that I plan to paint my face brown..get a James Brown wig and demand free meals at my local KFC or I will threaten to bring one ton of horse poop to their parking lot if they don’t give me free food
