A Galactic Spectacle – Cross Stitch Chart
This advanced cross-stitch design, A Galactic Spectacle, is a beautiful image released by NASA of two colliding galaxies which began more than 100 million years ago and is still occurring. It has triggered the formation of millions of stars in clouds of dusts and gas in the galaxies. This composite image from the Chandra X-ray Observatory, the Hubble Space Telescope and the Spitzer Space Telescope shows huge clouds of hot, interstellar gas that has been injected with rich deposits of elements from supernova explosions. It includes elements such as oxygen, iron, magnesium, and silicon, which will be incorporated into new generations of stars and planets.
