Is it the weekend yet?

As you may have noticed, I’m reserving most of my words this week for my novel-in-progress. But I wanted to share with you this amazing photo of the Valentine Rose Nebula to ease us all into the weekend.

The Five-Year-Old: “Did you know that nebulas are made by stars at death?”

She’s right. As this Space.com article on the Valentine Rose Nebula explains, those clouds of red and blue are created when a mid-sized star runs out of fuel and collapses on itself.

Happy weekend, y’all.
