July 2, 2012: Camelopardalis, or U Cam for short, is a star nearing the end of its life. As it begins to run low on fuel, it is becoming unstable. Every few thousand years, it coughs out a nearly spherical shell of gas as a layer of helium around its core begins to fuse. The gas ejected in the stars latest eruption is clearly visible in this picture as a faint bubble of gas surrounding the star.

My brother does fish research in Antarctica, and he hates penguins. So I bug him with pengie pics, and pengie gifts, etc.
These are pretty funny.

These are older, but my favorite wild horse series from PBS. The story of Cloud, from the beginning.
