Informally known as the "Soap Bubble Nebula", this planetary nebula (officially known as PN G75.5+1.7) was discovered by amateur astronomer Dave Jurasevich on July 6th, 2008. It was noted and reported by Keith Quattrocchi and Mel Helm on July 17th, 2008. This image was obtained with the Kitt Peak Mayall 4-meter telescope on June 19th, 2009 in the H-alpha (orange) and [OIII] (blue) narrowband filters. In this image, north is to the left and east is down.
Wizard Nebula-the music on this link is a little unreal, but boy, do I wish that when I die, I could see the universe (multi-verses?) in this false color imaging in my afterlife, forever, with the same sense of wonder I have now....
A single frame from yesterday's stack, picked due to the lack of light trails along the horizon. Coincidentally it shows Orion's constellation directly above the stones. I processed this differently to create a more timeless and isolated feel and it really shows why the Stonehenge landscape deserves to be in the top five locations for stargazing in the UK.

Beinn Alligin, Scotland Beinn Eighe is unusual amongst the Torridon mountains in that its summit is not composed of Precambrian Torridonian Sandstone, but Cambrian basal quartzite, a very hard but brittle rock. This gives it its familiar light coloured summits, a notable contrast to the other peaks in the area. Underlying the quartzite is a bed of Torridonian Sandstone.
