Red Moon Rising
This surreal, wintry scene is a composite picture recorded on December 10 as the Moon rose behind the Zagros Mountains of Iran. A total lunar eclipse was already in progress. The image combines nearly 500 successive frames taken over 1.5 hours beginning in twilight as the eclipsed Moon steadily climbed above the rugged landscape.

Thor’s Helmet: NGC 2359 in Canis Major
Distance 15,000 light years
In astrophotographs NGC 2359 has an ethereal quality. Surprisingly the outward appearance strongly contradicts the violent events which gave rise to the peculiar nebula. NGC 2359 is a prototypical wind blown bubble powered by the extremely massive and unstable Wolf-Rayet star HD 56925.
These types of stars (only about 300 are known presently) represent a late evolutionary phase of massive O-type blue giants which have become unstable in the late stages of their short stellar life. WR stars heavily influence the surrounding interstellar medium.
There are several basic types of nebulae associated with WR stars which run the gamut from concentric rings (NGC 6888), wind blown bubbles (NGC 7635), to filamentary type nebulae (NGC 2359). NGC 2359 consists of two distinct components.
