SMOKE RINGSAfter a brief stint offline in 2008 due to system malfunctions, the Hubble Telescope aimed its Wide Field Planetary Camera out into deep space to capture this lovely pair. Though the points of light look vaguely like a lens flare, this image demonstrated that Hubble was back in perfect working order.
Gravitational interactions between the two galaxies have given them both their curious shapes, earning them a spot in the Arp Catalog of Peculiar Galaxies as Arp 147. The pair can be found 400 million light-years away in the constellation of Cetus.
The bright blue knots in the galaxy on the right are lively areas of star formation. At some point in this pair’s history, the left galaxy likely passed through its companion. Like a stone thrown into water, it created “ripples” of higher matter density upon impact. As the resulting shockwave pushed the matter outwards, the ring of star formation was created. The reddish blotches in the right galaxy is likely what’s left of the nucleus. 
Galactic collisions, much like anything else in nature, are a delicate balance of creation and destruction. Though the original galaxy’s shape has been obliterated, the resulting star formation has given rise to a beautiful new configuration.

"I do have an opportunity that, unfortunately, others who are equally or more capable sometimes don’t have, of communicating to the general public. And it’s an opportunity that ought to be used carefully, not squandered. And used responsibly. But if I have opportunities to speak to the public, then certainly I’m not going to say no if I have something to speak for."
—Carl Sagan, Psychology Today, January 1996

(Space.com) The morning of Sept. 18, 1997, I made a special effort to try and document the occultation of the planet Saturn. This event was a rather rare one, an occurrence that I had looked forward to with great anticipation. Saturn’s disappearance behind the lunar disk occurs once in an approximately 18-year cycle. That is, the occultation can be seen from somewhere from the Earth once or twice in a year, then not again for about 18 years. The next such event will occur in just a few days. On May 14, 2014, at 10:15 UT, observers in New Zealand and Australia will be treated to the best views on planet Earth of this amazing spectacle. May they enjoy clear skies!

Aqua aura quartz is formed when gold is fused with clear quartz, resulting in a permanent blue coloring. It helps protect and shield oneself from psychological and psychic attacks. It also activates and balances all chakras, especially helps the throat chakra (improves communication and promotes honesty).
