Thanks, Marie. I thought the same thing - the groom and groomsmen including my son also had top hats, canes and monocles! And my daughter and all the bridesmaids had elbow length gloves and boas! Really fun!

Beautiful Hubble mosaic of star-spawning nebula

'Thar she blows: The Tarantula Nebula, birthplace of "thousands" of stars. The Hubble Space Telescope has had a peek behind the clouds of frenzied star-birthing supercluster the Tarantula Nebula, the nearest observable laboratory of the kind of star-making that was common in the early Universe.'

Astroboffins: We can track these twinklers from the cradle to the fiery grave
By Brid-Aine Parnell

January 13, 2014

NASA's SPACE TELESCOPE used near-infrared views to get a glimpse of the more than 800,000 stars and protostars embedded in the nebula, which are behind clouds of dust that can only be pierced by near-infrared light.

The Tarantula Nebula is 170,000 light years away in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a small satellite galaxy to our own Milky Way. Astroboffins [star experts] are particularly keen on studying the nebula because of the amount of star birth going on in there, with stars, red protostars, ageing red giants and supergiants all giving insights into stellar evolution.

The huge Hubble mosaic is made up of 438 separate pictures and spans 600 light-years.

"Because of the mosaic's exquisite detail and sheer breadth, we can follow how episodes of star birth migrate across the region in space and time," said Elena Sabbi, an astronomer at the Space Telescope Science Institute.

Stars started forming in the nebula tens of millions of years ago, but the star-making wasn't confined to one region. Within the Tarantula Nebula, pockets of star birth are bursting to life erratically, as soon as enough gas has accumulated. These pockets will likely eventually merge into larger clusters, helping researchers to answer questions like whether supermassive stars always form in clusters, or whether they can be born in isolation.

I can't compete with those beautiful waterfalls.

What I do have is a dog..my dog...lying on carpet that is overdue for replacement but I have other priorities.

Apologies for possible sizing issues.
