The Eskimo Nebula, as viewed by the Hubble Space Telescope.

When in doubt, I know I can always rely on the folks at NASA. Here we have the Eskimo Nebula. See those orange streaks pointing outward around the edge of the image? Those are each a lightyear in length. Wow.

NOTE: BTW, what with the Holidays on the next two Thursdays, I'm retiring the Image of the Week until January 8. How 'bout a hand for the folks in the IotW Department! What a crew! (Yeah, they're giving me the finger. They claim to be overworked down there, but I think they're just jealous of the people staffing the Move Over Britney! Division.)
