NASA just twittered:

A dragon-shaped cloud of dust seems to fly with the stars in a new image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. http://cot.ag/df5kQf

Hans...this photo of the *Star Dragon* is so beautiful.
I love the new color photos of the cosmos.
This photo is as beautiful as the ones I have of the
Horsehead Nebula...[wavesfondly in Steven's
direction]
