Mural Idea: Helix Planetary Nebula… Looking At Us


A spectacular “cosmic eye” has been photographed in space by a telescope in Chile, showing a distant nebula in which sunlike stars are burning themselves out.

The image of the Helix nebula, which lies 700 light years away in the constellation Aquarius, was captured with the Wide Field Imager instrument at the La Silla Observatory high above the Atacama Desert.

Already amazing in color and already resembling the human eye, when duplicated, it has an incredible resemblance to the human face.

This very high resolution image would be excellent for police stations, or anywhere else where big brother may be watching. Then again, maybe it’s better for a church. This image can be produced at up to 10′ high, by up to 40′ in width.
