now If one reverses the contellation name, we come up with SUNADIRE...and that may be stretched or emphasis made which gives us different meanings Suna-Dire or Sun a Dire might be two possibilities....

Now here's another idea - i guess. If it is growing, could that maybe not be another universe colliding with ours? Imagine two bubbles comming together. Where they attached and come closer so the point of contact becomes one and grows as they start to press together and become one. Interesting post none the less.

The Andromeda Galaxy is located, from our perspective, in the constellation Andromeda. However the galaxy is obviously not actually in the neighborhood of the stars which make up the constellation (the stars themselves having very large distances between eachother and us).
The area of sky where the void can be seen is located within a constellation. The void does not really rest among those stars. It is actually significantly larger than any known galaxy.

Personally, i think this is what happens when you screw around with the fabric of the universe too much.
Just *BANG* and your section of the universe is gone...somewhere....or completely destroyed. Leaving a gaping hole.
Does anyone find the irony or perhaps disturbing correlation in the fact that we found this just a few months before the supercollider in Geneva is set to be turned on? The one that everyone is afraid has a probability, however slim, of destroying the universe?
Makes you think.
