There's only so much we can learn from pretty pictures.
Most of the amazing hubble pics that you see are made of seperate images, each to measure different things. Artistic compositions and select views are
what most people enjoy seeing. Keeps the money rolling in the right direction (for other things).
The REAL work is much more mundane and involves routine studying but that's where the great discoveries are made.
This one for me is not as pretty as a nebula or galaxy but sure has a LOT more "mystique". Truly unique to date in our infantlile visioning
We may never know what it was and will maybe never see anything similar but I for one am glad that the big book on "everything" just keeps getting
We ain't seen nuthin' yet..........
flag and star to the OP, thanks. ( the star disappears afer 100 days!
