The Creature from the Red Lagoon


What creature lurks near the red Lagoon nebula? Mars. This gorgeous color deep-sky photograph has captured the red planet passing below two notable nebulae — cataloged by the 18th century cosmic registrar Charles Messier as M8 and M20. Just below and to the left is the expansive, alluring red glow of M8, light-years distant. By comparison, temporarily situated below them both, is the dominant “local” celestial beacon Mars. Taken late last month while near its closest approach to the Earth, the red planet was only a few light-minutes away.from NASA http://ift.tt/1ALafw8via IFTTT
