too jazzy?
Ladies and gentlemen, may I extend my warmest and most heart-wrenching welcomings to you. The humans call me Julie and I do art and that. My posts should give a more accurate sense of me than anything I can summarise here, other than to make clear that I am partial to both world peace AND long walks on the beach. If you're feeling bold, you may wish to sneak a glance at my videos, or other tumblrs. Be seeing you!

At first glance, this appeared to be an abstract piece of art - not to say that Cartography isn’t an artform of it’s own but you could have fooled me with these.

this is what space sounds like :D ……

Earlier this month, scientists from NASA’s Kepler mission discovered 54 planets in   so-called “habitable zones” in the Milky Way. The SETI Institute turned  its telescopes  toward those planets to listen.

The Expanding Light Echo of Red Supergiant Star V838 Monocerotis
V838 Monocerotis (V838 Mon) is a red variable star in the constellation Monoceros about 20,000 light years (6 kpc) from the Sun, and possibly one of the largest known stars. The previously unknown star was observed in early 2002 experiencing a major outburst. Originally believed to be a typical nova eruption, it was then realized to be something completely different. The reason for the outburst is still uncertain, but several theories have been put forward, including an eruption related to stellar death processes and a merger of a binary star or planets.Rapidly brightening objects like novae and supernovae are known to produce a phenomenon known as light echo. The light that travels directly from the object arrives first. If there are clouds of interstellar matter around the star, some light is reflected from the clouds. Because of the longer path, the reflected light arrives later producing a vision of expanding rings of light around the erupted object. In addition, the rings appear to travel faster than the speed of light.
In the case of V838 Monocerotis, the light echo produced was unprecedented and is well documented in images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope.

Frying pans that look like alien planets. This has been brought to my attention.
