Its a Mystery! – Simulacrum in Eagle Nebula
Of all the exotic & strangest photos ever taken from outer space, the most curious ones are of Eagle Nebula. According to the images received through various space cameras, Eagle Nebulae appear to made of gaseous clouds and they give birth to new stars. Eagle Nebulae are named after their bird alike shape.
First taken through Hubble, when this photo was first shown on CNN, hundreds of responses came in from people reporting that they could see a face in the cloud. When the color of the photo was adjusted, a large human form seemed to appear within the cloud. Couldn’t you see a human (or a wolf-man) in above image? As Eagle Nebulae are more productive and quite younger than other Nebula types, they were named ‘Star Queen Nebula‘ later.
Researchers argued such illusions to be incidental. As clouds can take any shape, Eagle Nebulae do the same too. The Nebula clouds work as same as water clouds do. The one major difference is only that one yields stars and latter yields water. NASA occasionally updates eagle nebula images and each time, a simulacrum appears. This is still a mystery.
