Another post from NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day that made me sit for a second and absorb the universe’s awesomeness in all it’s dutsy, ripped-from-a-sci-fi-movie glory.

Sometimes called the Iris Nebula, due to its porpensity to evoke floral imagery, these clouds of interstellar dust and gas have “blossomed 1,300 light-years away in the fertile star fields of the constellation Cepheus”.
