Ghost of the Cepheus Flare.
Credit & Copyright: Stephen Leshin. Spooky shapes of cosmic dust clouds seem to haunt this starry expanse, drifting through the night in the royal constellation Cepheus, some 1,200 light-years away. Over 2 light-years across, the ghostly nebula known as vdB 141 or Sh2-136 is near the centre of the field. The core of the dark cloud on the right is collapsing and is likely a binary star system in the early stages of formation.

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.
