I was advised that this image would be better suited here. It is an image from the public domain, a Hubble Space Telescope image released by NASA/ESA. I just reversed the color attributes to make one item in the image stand out more than it does in the original form (For that image, see Wikipedia's entry for Hoag's Object at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hoag%27s_Object ).
My posting from the Photo-a-Day Thread:
There is a galaxy called Hoag's Object. It is a special type of galaxy called a Ring Galaxy. A couple of years ago, while a woman was helping to sort through the Hubble images for NASA/ESA, she noticed an unusual bit to Hoag's. At the one o'clock position, through the ring gap there is another Ring Galaxy! Only one in tens of thousands form a ring but to have two lined up with a view from Earth is "Astronomical" no pun intended. If you look up Hoag's and see the black space image, the second ring is too faint to see without the original image and a magnifying glass. My contribution was to reverse the color attributes and voila, the second ring is visible to all.

If you aren't seeing Heaven while you dream, you're doing something wrong.
Dreams allow escape from the passage of Time.
