Explanation: By starlight this eerie visage shines in the dark, a crooked profile evoking its popular name, the Witch Head Nebula. In fact, this entrancing telescopic portrait gives the impression the witch has fixed her gaze on Orion’s bright supergiant star Rigel. Spanning over 50 light-years, the dusty cosmic cloud strongly reflects nearby Rigel’s blue light, giving it the characteristic color of a reflection nebula. Cataloged as IC 2118, the Witch Head Nebula is about 1,000 light-years away. Of course, you might see a witch this scary tonight, but don’t panic.

    Sorry, but I’m pretty sure that’s Conan O’brien.

    If that doesn’t prove the existence of witches, nothing does… and with a bit of luck her and her kind will be granted a pardon for any criminiality they had done in days of yore: http://www.pardonthewitches.com/

    I’m right with you. And so, it should be the Leprechaun Nebula instead.
