APOD: NGC 6302: The Butterfly Nebula (2013 Jun 07) Image Credit: NASA, ESA, and the Hubble SM4 ERO Team http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130607.html Explanation: The bright clusters and nebulae of planet Earth's night sky are often named for flowers or insects. Though its wingspan covers over 3 light-years, NGC 6302 is no exception. With an estimated surface temperature of about 250,000 degrees C, the dying central star of this particular planetary nebula has become exceptionally hot, shining brightly in ultraviolet light but hidden from direct view by a dense torus of dust. This sharp and colorful close-up of the dying star's nebula was recorded in 2009 by the Hubble Space Telescope's Wide Field Camera 3, installed during the final shuttle servicing mission. Cutting across a bright cavity of ionized gas, the dust torus surrounding the central star is near the center of this view, almost edge-on to the line-of-sight. Molecular hydrogen has been detected in the hot star's dusty cosmic shroud. NGC 6302 lies about 4,000 light-years away in the arachnologically correct constellation of the Scorpion (Scorpius). http://hubblesite.org/news/2009/25 http://spacetelescope.org/news/heic0910/ Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=130607 Starship Asterisk* • On This Day in APOD http://asterisk.apod.com/view_retro.php?date=0607

Supermoon this weekend! The largest full moon of 2013, a so-called "supermoon," will light up the night sky this weekend, arriving at perigee on Sunday, June 23, at 7am EDT (1100 GMT).
