HUBBLE

PHOTO RELEASE - V838 MONOCEROTIS REVISITED: SPACE PHENOMENON IMITATES ART [HEIC0405] 'Starry Night', Vincent van Gogh's famous painting, is renowned for its bold whorls of light sweeping across a raging night sky. Although this image of the heavens came only from the artist's restless imagination, a new picture from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope bears remarkable similarities to the van Gogh work, complete with never-before-seen spirals of dust swirling across trillions of kilometres of interstellar space.
