Hubble Spots a Celestial Bauble
ScienceDaily (Dec. 15, 2010) — Hubble has spotted a festive bauble of gas in our neighbouring galaxy, the Large Magellanic Cloud. Formed in the aftermath of a supernova explosion that took place four centuries ago, this sphere of gas has been snapped in a series of observations made between 2006 and 2010.

reminds me of the orb phenomenon that sometimes comes up in pictures, associated with the 'supernatural' and/or 'spirits' haha, just a super huge version

'BAUBLE' ??



A bauble was originally a stick with a weight attached, used in weighing a child's toy, but especially the mock symbol of office carried by a court jester. This fool's bauble was a baton terminating in a figure of Folly with cap and bells, and sometimes having a bladder fastened to the other end. Subsequently it became a term for anything trivial or childishly folly. More recently the term means a virtually worthless decorative object.


Wikipedia

I guess it's supposed to be bubble.

Keeping that aside, this is a brilliant find!
What an amazing sight


Does anyone think we can even imagine everything that's out there, never mind living it


S+F Great find

Yeah i guessed as much.
Just clearing my mind there


We will never know everything there is out there...
I only hope by the end of our lives we at least know something

I like it


It is beautiful though. How can they call it a cloud? Looks like a bubble to me.

And what is also frustrating is that we definitely have no access to what those alphabet agencies have.
If they are releasing these pictures which are so mind blowingly awesome, i wonder what we don't get to see

No bauble's right, a bauble hangs from the christmas tree, and can look pretty like that.

Yeah, a bauble is a cute little decoration, usually a ball or an orb. They tend to have little value.

I am actually kind of surprised no nation has designed an astrmoetrics lab for the ISS yet.

They do go together. There must be giant invisible space Christmas trees.

These are beautiful images. The bauble looks almost like something you'd see in the ocean. I really liked this one from back in September:
