Hand of God? Or Cosmic Angel? What NASA's "cloud" looks like really is up in the air.
But what is it, really? NASA says it's a new X-ray image of a pulsar wind nebula, or the remnants of a star that exploded in a supernova.
The image was made using high-energy X-rays of the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array, or NuSTAR (shown in blue), and lower-energy X-rays imaged by NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory (green and red).
NASA says the actual pulsar can't be seen here, and what you can see depends on your "ink blot" sensibilities -- called "pareidolia, meaning the perception of familiar shapes in random ones. Like in cloud-gazing.
