Reason #90: Hubble Make Pretty

I give you IRS 4, a young star about 2 thousand light years away and about fifteen times the size of the sun. This article explains why it looks the way it looks, but I can't quite get my head around it. Something about gas.

(Side note: I am on vacation for the next week or so. I'm going to endeavor to post something every weekday like usual, but more than likely they will be short and somewhat pithy, like this one. Rest assured that my full attention will have returned by Monday the 26th at the latest.)
