The Red Rose

The Red Rose

Picture: Three thousand light-years away, a dying star throws off shells of glowing gas. This image from the Hubble Space Telescope reveals The Cat's Eye Nebula to be one of the most complex planetary nebulae known. In fact, the features seen in the Cat's Eye are so complex that astronomers suspect the bright central object may actually be a binary star system. The term planetary nebula, used to describe this general class of objects, is misleading. Although these objects may appear round and planet-like in small telescopes, high resolution images reveal them to be stars surrounded by cocoons of gas blown off in the late stages of stellar evolution. On planet Earth, of course, cats and other creatures may be on the prowl tonight. Keep your eyes peeled and have a safe and happy Halloween!


The picture was taken by the NASA Hubble Space Telescope of the "Cat's Eye Nebula", an exploding star 3,000 light years away. It is also mentioned (Nasa Site) that this represents a dying star which inevitably is the awaiting faith of our own solar system.which the holy Quran speaks of as the day when the Sky is torn apart. it would be like a Red Rose like ointment:

"When the sky is torn apart, so it was (like) a red rose like ointment. Then which of the favours of your lord will you deny?"
(Quran 55:37-38)

As Mentioned in the holy Book the Quran over 1,400 years ago; Indeed a favor for us to contemplate and dwell upon.
