Supernova's Blast Wave
Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
This is an image of a small portion of the Cygnus Loop supernova remnant. The Cygnus Loop marks the edge of a bubble-like, expanding blast wave from a colossal stellar explosion occurring about 15,000 years ago.The supernova blast wave is slamming into tenuous clouds of interstellar gas. Heated and compressed, the gas glows.The shock acts as a searchlight by revealing the structure of the interstellar medium.
