Astro Anarchy gets published, again...

SPACE PICTURE OF THE WEEK, second in row...

National Geographic published my picture of Simeis 147, the "Expansive Nebula", as one of the Space pictures of the Week, Today 24.02. Actually this is a second one in two weeks, I'm kind of shocked... 
Here is the link to a National Georaphic news:

Simeis 147, Sharpless 240 (Sh2-240)
In constellation Taurus

Image is in mapped colors, from the emission of ionized elements, R=Sulfur, G=Hydrogen and B=Oxygen.

Original blog post for this image, with technical details, can be seen here:
