"The Great Nebula in Orion is an intriguing place. Visible to the unaided eye, it appears as a small fuzzy patch in the constellation of Orion. But this image, an illusory-color four-panel mosaic taken in different bands of infrared light with the Earth orbiting WISE observatory, shows the Orion Nebula to be a bustling neighborhood of recently formed stars, hot gas, and dark dust. The power behind much of the Orion Nebula (M42) is the stars of the Trapezium star cluster, seen near the center of the featured image. The orange glow surrounding the bright stars pictured here is their own starlight reflected by intricate dust filaments that cover much of the region. The current Orion Nebula cloud complex, which includes the Horsehead Nebula, will slowly disperse over the next 100,000 years."

I don't see the monkey, stunned, but I'll take some of what you're smoking. :-)

Is it only me that sees a dancing monkey right smack in the middle of all these nice colors? Thanks for the nice puzzle.

Beats most of the alternative explanations!

I have a TeflonĀ® frying pan and the inside is light blue. That'll have to do.

Bill_I_Am

Ha, there are those great minds in action again. I'm not sure about the blue, though. I'll pass on breakfast, thanks. :-)

Without reading your comments, I solved the puzzle. When finished, I decided it looked like the early stages of scrambled fertile eggs. I guess we all have similar ideas. Time for breakfast! Thanks, Bill.

Hey, that's even better!

Or maybe an Abstract Impressionist's attempt at capturing the essence of a macabre omelet.

Bill_I_Am

Yes, that too.

Or perhaps a work by an Abstract Impressionist painter.

This reminds me of a macabre omelet.
