The Monday Photo Shoot: Show off your favorite Hubble Space Telescope image. Tell us why you love it.
I love this photo - probably because of the colors (my favorites - purple and red) and the multitude of amazing stars. Its interesting also that the caption compares it to one of my favorite paintings - Starry Night by VanGogh. For some reason it also reminds me of a giant red eyeball, but I like the Starry Night thing much better. Its just brilliant.'Starry Night'
This image resembling Vincent van Gogh's painting, 'Starry Night,' is Hubble's view of an expanding halo of light around a distant star, named V838 Monocerotis. A red supergiant star glows at the middle of the image. (Hubble Heritage Team / NASA)
