-- Celestial bubble SNR 0509 in the LMC --
This delicate shell, photographed by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, appears to float serenely in the depths of space, but this apparent calm hides an inner turmoil. The gaseous envelope formed as the expanding blast wave and ejected material from a supernova tore through the nearby interstellar medium. Called SNR B0509-67.5 (or SNR 0509 for short), the bubble is the visible remnant of a powerful stellar explosion in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a small galaxy about 160 000 light-years from Earth. Ripples in the shell’s surface may be caused either by subtle variations in the density of the ambient interstellar gas, or possibly be driven from the interior by fragments from the initial explosion. The bubble-shaped shroud of gas is 23 light-years across and is expanding at more than 18 million km/h.
Hubble’s Advanced Camera for Surveys observed the supernova remnant on 28 October 2006 with a filter that isolates light from the glowing hydrogen seen in the expanding shell. These observations were then combined with visible-light images of the surrounding star field that were imaged with Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3 on 4 November 2010, and archival X-ray observations taken by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory.

What I post next immediately jumped to the front of my list of favorites of all time. To start with, it involves six consecutive images taken by an astronaut on STS007 Challenger (2nd mission). So bizarre in fact, I can't imagine ever topping them. There are five anomalies moving in a variety of directions, both towards and away from the orbiter. One even stays in the same spot flickering for five pictures, then takes off. There is a couple of possible aliens too. And one dramatic WTF that I am absolutely going to inquire to NASA about.

But the fact that I have spent all night downloading the original tiff file (+59.MB) and preparing the presentation of presentations, I can't keep my eyes open long enough to...

OK, maybe a peak at one of the anomalies...

Oh man, I just don't know where to start. I know, how about the first image...

(There are actually about ten "dots" in that first image)

That's right, I started out looking at the little dot. :o

As you can see, the little dot has moved up and away...

Image

STS007-18-775
http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/sseop/images/IS ... 18-775.JPG

Now notice the new anomaly to the right of the tail section? Turns out it was in the first picture too,
but much dimmer, and in the same exact spot.

:obsessed: To be continued...

The original anomaly continued in the same up and away motion and can barely be seen without zooming in (which I did). The second anomaly is still in the same spot. Plus now a third one appears...

STS007-18-776
http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/sseop/images/IS ... 18-776.JPG

...and then also moved up and away...

Image

STS007-18-777
http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/sseop/images/IS ... 18-777.JPG

(The anomaly to the right of the tail section still remains in the same spot.)

And then... :scary:

STS007-18-778 :o
http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/sseop/images/IS ... 18-778.JPG

I'm sure some of you are thinking "main engine burn".
The main engine is not used for course correction.
There are multiple small thruster rockets used for that...
