In cygnus, which is on the other side of our milky way galaxy, there is a place that is closer to our galactic center (where the supermassive black hole is) than we are.
This certain object is a star that is dead and blew up in a nova. A nova is a smaller supernova, which you may have heard of. Our own sun will end in a nova that will turn into a white dwarf star. All the rocky 4 planets will be vaporized by the nova blast, but the 4 gas giants will stay for quite some time after. Our star will see it's end around the same time that the andromeda Galaxy combines with our milky way galaxy. It will be a site to see!
Like most things that are photographed in the cosmos, there is no exception for THE CYCLOPS! Local astronomers are usualy the first to see the new stars being born. Then, they are verified and named and put into lists. Thats what the "v848" or whatever is up there stands for. It's in a list.
Taken by the hubble space teliscope, there is a picture that is much better looking than this one. Unfortunately, pastels are really hard to use.
I'll stick to colored pencils.

I love the universe even as I love black holes ! I'm a girl who loves astrology and astronomy and always try to learn more about the planets that surround us and are always around us.

I believe that there are no stars in yes planets. We see these millions of bright spots in the sky every night and do not imagine that are galaxies millions of light years away from us!

I do not wait to buy my telescope !

Oh, I LOVED the design ! Very beautiful!

Working with pastels is very complicated , I have great difficulty ! Normally I use pens from Tombow to draw. They are expensive (around R$15,00 here in Brazil ) but are well worth it !!

Congratulations , I love the design !!

This was just awesome, but it's just hard to see which side it points.. oh well, great job mate, and yes I understand how pastels can be a bit tricky to use but is quite helpful on other taste or genre of art.. anyways Great job and keep up the awesome work :D.

there is no perfect "point" in anything! hahaha
I've learned that in space, everything is determined by the 4 Fundamental forces of nature -

the strong nuclear force, weak nuke force, electro-magnetic force, and gravity!

but there things larger and smaller. and they are the dimensions. I love machio kaku's book - hyper space. it involves a brief but clear use of all of the major issues of the 1990's of science, famous people like Einstein and future possibilities of awesome uses. I love it.
