There's A Cat In The Omega Nebula (You won't believe this)
Dark Roasted Blend ^ | January 2012 | Avi Abrams

Posted on 07/08/2012 1:15:21 PM PDT by Windflier

Find the bright star in the (upper) blue portion of the nebula. Look straight down and you can see the tip of the cat's left ear.

Look down and to the left, and you can see two perfectly symmetrical eyes, with a perfectly formed feline nose between them, exactly where you'd expect it to be.

It gets even weirder. Look above the cat's right eye and you can faintly see its right ear sticking up. If you can now clearly see the face of the cat, look to your right and you will see its entire body.



Even spookier....I can even see the spotted markings on the cat's face, and whiskers.

I see the cat you describe, and another one’s head/ear to the left. And there’s my ex!

I need some more ‘shrooms...

I couldn’t see the cat without help, but now that I do, there’s a Walmart associate just left of him...big beefy guy in navy shirt?...about to punch cat in the nose.

Thanks Windflier, it’s an ‘extra, extra’ ping to the APoD list.

That's just great. We now learn that the fate of several thousand years of mankind's accomplishments will eventually be wiped out after being eaten by the giant space cat. This is why the universe can't have nice things.

I don’t see the cat. Is it in the part of the picture where the Spanish Inquisition is hiding?

The weirdest part is that, this is a mother cat, and the kittens are hidden behind the mother, where we can’t see them, but, they’re there. We just need to get at a different angle to see them. Perhaps the next picture will reveal them, when they move around to the front of the mother.

There are two versions of the cat’s face..straight on, then looking to it’s left. On the cat’s right is a version of a dog/wolf face....amazing. Popped right out.
