The Crab Nebula

The crab nebula, taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. Just because.
"In 1054 AD, Chinese astronomers were startled by the appearance of a new star, so bright it could be seen in broad daylight for several weeks. Today, the Crab Nebula is what's left of the supernova explosion they witnessed." --From NASA
