Swarm of Hydrogen Clouds Flying Away from Center of our Galaxy
Official press release from the Green Bank Observatory.
This image was created using a large-format image of the Milky Way galaxy (photo by Serge Brunier, more info about this work here) upon which an illustration of the expanding clouds was created in Photoshop.
Creating an image of something which is not exactly visible to the naked eye is intrinsically difficult, and there was much back-and-forth between myself and the research scientists on how these clouds may be best represented. The end result is quite satisfying, although I would love to see what this REALLY looks like, some day.Paul Vosteen – Artists statement
