Firefox logo seen in the stars!

Recommended Posts

One of these is a photograph taken by the Hubble space telescope on December 17, 2002, featuring the variable star V838 Monocerotis. The other is the same photograph overlaid with a familiar logo. Can you tell which is which?Below is another photo of the same star, from the Wikipedia entry on V838 Monocerotis. If the above photo has been photoshopped to look more like the Firefox logo, the editing seems minimal: it's been rotated relative to the photo below, and some of the gas cloud may have been edited out around the "tail" of the fox.

If you've got a link to the original Hubble photo used above, let us know in the comments so we can compare. UPDATE: An eagle-eyed commenter, Wevah, spotted the original version of the Firefox-like nova photo on Wikipedia. It looks like the only modification was to rotate the image. It must be a sign from the stars!

Another interesting item relating to space can be seen on YouTube. About the ration in size of how small Earth is compared to VV Cephei.

VY Canis Majoris is currently the largest known. The most luminous known is LBV 1806-20. Just look at it compared to the Sun.

How amazing. And how insignificant are we?

Indeed.

Yet, sometime we think we are so important...

I can't help but think of the endings to the Men In Black movies when seeing these things. :hmm:

Hehe, indeed.

Thats a great ending. :D
