"Stars can make waves in the Orion Nebula's sea of gas and dust. This esthetic close-up of cosmic clouds and stellar winds features LL Orionis, interacting with the Orion Nebula flow. Adrift in Orion's stellar nursery and still in its formative years, variable star LL Orionis produces a wind more energetic than the wind from our own middle-aged Sun. As the fast stellar wind runs into slow moving gas a shock front is formed, analogous to the bow wave of a boat moving through water or a plane traveling at supersonic speed. The small, arcing, graceful structure just above and left of center is LL Ori's cosmic bow shock, measuring about half a light-year across. The slower gas is flowing away from the Orion Nebula's hot central star cluster, the Trapezium, located off the upper left corner of the picture. In three dimensions, LL Ori's wrap-around shock front is shaped like a bowl that appears brightest when viewed along the "bottom" edge. This beautiful painting-like photograph is part of a large mosaic view of the complex stellar nursery in Orion, filled with a myriad of fluid shapes associated with star formation."

I think your Doubt poem applies here.

The Artist—ok.

Bill_I_Am

It is actually visible if you are the Hubble space telescope. But you might well wonder about the artist. Thanks, I always enjoy your visits, Ellen.

Nellies

Is this beauty actually visible far up in the Universe or are the colours based on the imagination of superb artists?

Bill_I_Am

Haha, Ron, you've been watching too much telly. :-)

Bill_I_Am

Thanks, Simone, and I certainly try!

Bommom

:-) Ron!

These are the voyages of the Starship Bill_I_Am, its continuing mission to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and civilisations, to boldy go where no Bill has gone before!

Another great and wondrous galaxy image! Please keep them coming!

Fortunately, understanding what you're seeing is not required for enjoying its beauty. Thanks for dropping by the Orion Nebula, Gayle.

Bommom

Incredibly beautiful! Thanks for the explanation, Bill. I'm sure I'll quickly forget most of it. It made a colorful (not dark) puzzle. :-)
