"I think music is about our internal life. It’s part of the way people touch each other. That’s very precious to me. And astronomy is, in a sense, the very opposite thing. Instead of looking inwards, you are looking out, to things beyond our grasp." -Brian May
Located in the constellation of the hunting dogs, NGC 4214 is a place where stars are being born amidst much older stars. This stellar zoo is one of the prime places astronomers look to find out more about alien Suns
NGC 4449 (also known as Caldwell 21) is an irregular galaxy in the constellation Canes Venatici. It is located about 12 million light-years away, part of the M94 Group (the Canes Venatici I Group), a galaxy group relatively close to the Local Group containing the Milky Way. This well-studied galaxy is similar in size and brightness, and often compared to, the Milky Way’s satellite galaxy, the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). NGC 4449 has a general bar shape, also characteristic of the LMC, with scattered young blue star clusters.
The universe is composed of an infinitude of relationships - within varying degrees - simultaneously intermeshing between all things at once. Every part of the universe influences the entire rest of the whole universe both locally and nonlocally, and vice-versa. We do not live in a closed system separate from the rest of the cosmos; nothing is truly separate from anything else.
Do you know what you are?
You are a manuscript of a divine letter.
You are a mirror reflecting a noble face.
This universe is not outside of you.
Look inside yourself;
everything that you want,
you are already that.
