Remix from Nightly and Aurora by Sean.Martell. This Persona overlays the Variable Star named V838 Monocerotis. Nominated for most mysterious star in the Milky Way, the light from it's explosion 20K light years ago reached earth in 2002. The diameter of the outburst shell is about 6 light years. When rotated 180 degrees, the NASA image at apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap040305.html resembles the Firefox logo. Various photos of V838 has been featured as the NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day website nine times since 2002.
