Why are you reporting this puzzle?

Although NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has taken many breathtaking images of the universe, one snapshot stands out from the rest: the iconic view of the so-called “Pillars of Creation.” The jaw-dropping photo, taken in 1995, revealed never-before-seen details of three giant columns of cold gas bathed in the scorching ultraviolet light from a cluster of young, massive stars in a small region of the Eagle Nebula, or M16.

And now, in celebration of its upcoming 25th anniversary in April, Hubble has revisited the famous pillars, providing astronomers with a sharper and wider view. As a bonus, the pillars have been photographed in near-infrared light, as well as visible light. The infrared view transforms the pillars into eerie, wispy silhouettes seen against a background of myriad stars. That’s because the infrared light penetrates much of the gas and dust, except for the densest regions of the pillars. Newborn stars can be seen hidden away inside the pillars.

Hi Lady C - it *is* good to hear from you.

I'm glad you're still making your DYRs :-).

I'll check it out!

Sorry typo below, it was 1,000 puzzles not 3,000

Hey, Like, great to see you, you have been missed. Yes, I am still going .... I went from DYR on 9th June to DoYouRemember, mostly because I had posted 3,000 puzzles so I thought it was time I gave it a make over. Recently the trolls have been targetting Do You Remember and there has been some very nasty comments made by them. I set up DYR2 just this week with Barry Manilow, on purpose, without a star and solve it so the others have to solve and bump me if they want a tenner. Mind you, they just go ahead now and re-post as 9 stars if there are 9 stars on the leaderboard and they leave me on, starless because I am the creator lol. It really is good to see you. Lady C

What a fabulous bio. I enjoyed reading it very much. It seems I am very slow on the uptake as I just recently discovered this site and this wonderful community. Blessings, Mary

Wow! A spectacular picture. Thanks for the update, like. You sound very busy - I'm glad all is going well for you, and pray it continues. It would be good to 'see' you when ever you're able. Best Wishes, Nicky from England UK.
