Celestial matters

Time for pretty pictures as I gaze at the night sky. There are lots of animal constellations but few feline representations. However, the Cat's Eye Nebula, one of the first planetary nebulae to be discovered, makes up for the lamentable omission by its spectacular appearance captured in this picture by NASA's Hubble space telescope. Wow!

Dear Momo,
You must have very good eyes to observe all of these things. They say cats do, you know, have good eyesight. We dogs tend to use our noses more - and I'm telling you, you can't really smell the cosmos as such...
