This is not a typical “stellar nursery” where nebulae coalesce to birth new stars. This is the opposite. The gruesome remains of a star that has died violently – it’s corpse shredded and splattered across the night sky like bloody veins stretched to their limits in every direction from the fury. A small detail from the wider “Vela Supernova Remnant, this image is one small section of the large violent scene that passes overhead each night, too faint for your eyes to discern.
