star panorama project

Description Mira A is a red giant variable star in the constellation Cetus. This ultravioletwavelength image mosaic, taken by NASA’s GALEX, shows a comet-like “tail” stretching 13 light year across space. The “tail” consists of hydrogen gas blown off of the star, with the material at the furthest end of the “tail” having been emitted about 30,000 years ago. The tail-like configuration of the emitted material appears to result from Mira’s uncommonly high speed (about 130 km/s (81 mi/s)) relative to the Milky Way galaxy’s ambient gas. Mira itself is seen as a small white dot inside a blue bulb.

About kathyfoshay

I'm all alone with the real end of the world and always looking for assistance and no one's ever contacted me from the hundreds of letters I'd sent while at the big homeless shelter, 2nd and D Streets, NW, as though anyone that tries to contact me gets disappeared, my life used as a LURE-gimmick that goes to how that Armageddon prophecy in that book of Revelation has been being snuck-through, and this is sort of the bottom of the barrel of ideas for trying to find assistance, thinking I could get all my various writings on this in one place that letter-recipients could then look up if they're interested. That means I'd have to see if I can send my emails to here, how to do that. Wordpress said there is a way but it entails that spam would also get the email address. My time for now it up I guess. Working in this sitting position isn't healthy for me but I've always got to be doing something toward trying to get hold of someone to help me. It's like I'm a microcosm of the Earth or the human race and if someone could help me out of this torture then that'd be a start on trying to get the whole Earth out of this. 5/1/17, still all this, etc., same situation. (7/14/18 now....) Now it's 2019.
