Cat's Eye Nebula by DarkSilverflame Cat's Eye Nebula by DarkSilverflame
An old painting of the Cat's Eye Nebula, a planetary nebula in the constellation of Draco (dragon). At the center of the nebula, there are two stars orbiting each other.

This sort of nebula is what the sun will produce at the end of it's lifetime.

(Astronomical catalogs: NGC 6543, Caldwell 6)

Amazing, both picture and the phenomenon, it's nice that you always describe from astronomic side what you paint

This is a beautiful work. Although I thought the Cat's Eye nebula was more lime-green and red.

I got shivers from this painting. There´s something beautifull and yet omnious in it.

That was one strange and unsymetrical supernova.

I figured, but doesn't it seem at first glance to be kinda geometrical? For an explosion, I mean.

Oh wow, such an accurate painting, it's beautiful and perfectly done. Have you ever considered the crab nebula? it's combination of greens reds and oranges aswell as it's unusual form maked it unique, it would be a lovely one to do :) My interest in both astrology and art truly makes me fall in love with this painting, well done :)

The blue colour you've used is absolutely gorgeous. I especially love how it contrasts the orange in the outer part.
