Sharpless 249 and the Jellyfish Nebula. Image Credit & Copyright: Albert Barr. The Jellyfish Nebula centred in the scene it's anchored right and left by two bright stars, Mu and Eta Geminorum, at the foot of the celestial twin. The Nebula is the brighter arcing ridge of emission with dangling tentacles, a part of bubble-shaped supernova remnant IC 443; the expanding debris cloud from a massive star that exploded. Light from the explosion first reached planet Earth over 30,000 years ago. It is known to harbour a neutron star, the remnant of the collapsed stellar core. An emission nebula catalogued as Sharpless 249 fills the field at the upper left. The Jellyfish Nebula is about 5,000 light-years away. At that distance, this image would be about 300 light-years across.
The Dogon people of Mali have a rich history and are believed to be descendants of ancient Egyptians. They are renowned for their astronomical knowledge and wisdom dating back to 3200 B.C. The Dogon are also famous for their mask dances, wooden sculptures, and architecture. Their art is centred around religious values and ideals. Like many African societies, the Dogon are agriculturalists, cultivating millet, sorghum, and rice, as well as peanuts, onions, and tobacco. Today, there are approximately between 400,000 and 800,000 Dogon people in Mali.
The national flag of Latvia was used by independent Latvia from 1918 until the country was occupied by the Soviet Union in 1940. Shortly before regaining its independence, Latvia re-adopted on 27 February 1990 the same red-white-red flag. The red colour is sometimes described as symbolizing the readiness of the Latvians to give the blood from their hearts for freedom and their willingness to defend their liberty.
Of the thousands of thoughts a person has every day, it’s estimated that 70% of this mental chatter is negative — self-critical, pessimistic, and fearful.
