Floating towards RS Puppis

ESA/Hubble is releasing a series of stunning fulldome clips, freely available to planetariums across the globe as part of the 25th anniversary celebrations. The clips are in 4k and 8k fulldome format and rendered for uni-directional domes. This one shows RS Puppis encroaching on the viewer in this fulldome clip of the Cepheid variable star. The star’s pulsation creates the concentric circles of blue light present in the surrounding gas and dust; an example of an unusual phenomenon known as light echo. Via Hubble
