    Nice. My 8 year old son and I spent an hour with the new scale-zoom masterpiece and one of the questions he left me with to google today was “ok what is Gomez’ Hamburger?”

    I just discovered this yesterday as well, I assume it’s because we’ve all just seen the Powers of 3 video that’s been making the rounds (again?).

  3. So if the star is in the middle of that image, presumably not visible because it is outshone by its dust cloud, and the dust is orbiting the star, wouldn’t that make the star a kind of treat in the middle of a misshapen spheroidal dumpling? 

    I propose we rename it Gomezbaum’s Kneidl.

    Personally speaking, I would have named it “Lana Del Rey”.

    Where exactly IS this? Can I see it with either my 6″ Newtonian reflector or my 3.5″ refractor?

    When we identify an accreted planet, please name it Pickle.  And should a gassy Saturn-like planet also appear, please name it Onion.

    More proof that the recording industry does not care about artists. Alive? Low price CD. Dead? Let’s make more money off you!
