Not Easy Being Green

A green blob in space? Haven’t these people ever heard of the Old Ones? According to an article on sciencemag.org, an object in space, which has been named Hanny’s Voorweep (I think Azathoth’s Playground would have been a more apt monniker), is speculated to be an enormous cloud of hot gas. Some of this information, as well as several spectacular images, were recently made possible by the Hubble telescope.

Scientists speculate the cloud is gas from a black hole (any resulting jokes out there will be considered a sign of immaturity). The greenish color is apparently caused by radiation exciting oxygen atoms. Some others of us speculate the green is a miasma of destruction spewed forth in preparation for the Old Ones to make their final leap between the stars to reclaim that which was once their.
I’m just saying.
