This fine-art advanced cross stitch design comes from the Hubble Space Telescope’s latest image of the star V838 Monocerotis and reveals dramatic changes in the illumination of surrounding dusty cloud structures. Light continues to echo three years after stellar outburst. The effect, called a light echo, has been unveiling never-before-seen dust patterns ever since the star suddenly brightened for several weeks in early 2002.
This fine-art advanced cross stitch design comes from Hubble Space Telescope’s image of the Bubble Nebula. It is 10 to 20 times more massive than our Sun and is 10 light-years across, (more than twice the distance from Earth to the nearest star). Only part of the bubble is visible in this image. The glowing gas in the lower right-hand corner is a dense region of material that is getting blasted by radiation from the Bubble Nebula’s massive star. The radiation is eating into the gas, creating finger-like features.
This celestial object looks like a delicate butterfly, but it is far from serene. What resembles dainty butterfly wings are actually roiling cauldrons of hot gas. The gas is tearing across space at more than 600,000 miles an hour, fast enough to travel from Earth to the Moon in 24 minutes! The dying star that was once about five times the mass of our Sun is at the center of this fury. It lies within our Milky Way galaxy, roughly 3,800 light-years away in the constellation Scorpius. The glowing gas is the star’s outer layers, expelled over about 2,200 years. The “butterfly” stretches for more than two light-years, which is about half the distance from the Sun to the nearest star.
This is an advanced cross-stitch design of the Cat’s Eye Nebula, an image produced through the Hubble Space Telescope. The Cat’s Eye Nebula is a dying star in our vast universe and is revealed by the Hubble Telescope to be one of the most complex planetary nebulae known. In fact, the features seen in the … [View Details]
This advanced cross-stitch design, Cassiopeia A: Death Becomes Her, is produced from an image taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. Cassiopeia A is located 10,000 light-years away in the northern constellation Cassiopeia, and is the remnant of a massive star that died in a violent supernova explosion 325 years ago. The dead star, called a … [View Details]

This is an advanced cross stitch design of two colliding galaxies located about 62 million light-years from Earth. The galaxy is called the Antennae Galaxy. This image is a composite image from the Chandra X-ray Observatory, the Hubble Space Telescope and the Spitzer Space Telescope. The collision began more than 100 million years ago and is still occurring.
