NGC 346 in the Small Magellanic Cloud.
Credit: A. Nota (ESA/STScI) et al., ESA, NASA. Found among the Small Magellanic Cloud's (SMC) clusters and nebulae, NGC 346 is a star-forming region about 200 light-years across. A satellite galaxy of the Milky Way, the SMC in the southern sky, is a mere 210,000 light-years distant in the constellation of the Toucan.

Work of Art
Sunflowers (Tournesols) is the name of two series of still life paintings by the Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh. The first series, executed in Paris in 1887, depicts the flowers lying on the ground, while the second set, executed a year later in Arles, shows a bouquet of sunflowers in a vase. In the artist's mind, both sets were linked by the name of his friend Paul Gauguin, who acquired two of the Paris versions. On March 30, 1987, Japanese insurance magnate, Yasuo Goto, paid the equivalent of US $39,921,750 for van Gogh's Still Life: Vase with Fifteen Sunflowers at auction at Christie's London. The painting currently resides at Seiji Togo Yasuda Memorial Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo.
