astro picture for the day

NASA Hubble Space Telescope image of a star that will go supernova in a relatively soon  time - astronomicaly speaking.  Astronomers are actually surprised it didn't blow up over a hundred years ago(well, the light that showed this recent burst still quite visible . . . evidently!).  Well, we'll see!

This image is one of Hubble's earliest and still greatest hits!
