a celestial butterfly

(captured by the Hubble telescope)
i chanced upon this on MSN news today.. and just HAD TO add it here.

given how i am drawn to butterfly motifs and prints, you'd understand why this picture is particularly meaningful to me *smile* - a true cosmic celestial butterfly indeed - though this explosion actually also marked the end of this star's lifespan.

see other amazing cosmic wonders here.
