I have tried copying and pasting the explanation for the image above but for some reason I can't. In summary, the bright blue star in the center is called Zeta Ophiuchi (uchi wally wally, uchi bang bang...). It is moving through interstellar space at 24 Kilometers per second. The glowing, red formation is called a bowshock and is created by stellar wind from Zeta and interstellar material. The same effect is observed as a boat travels across water. Zeta Ohiuchi(Uchi wally wally, uchi bang bang) is 20 times more massive than our sun, 65,000 times more luminous and is 460 lightyears away.
But to me, this image looks like a face in profile. For more cool wallpapers and explanations of the universe and different cosmic phenomena follow this link.
