 Giclée, Cibachrome

This painting is an artistic interpretation of a color inverted Hubble view of a phenomenon in space called a light echo coming from the unusual variable star V838 Monocerotis located 20,000 light-years away on the periphery of our Galaxy. Light from a star that erupted ten years ago continues propagating outward through a cloud of dust surrounding the star. The light reflects or "echoes" off the dust and then travels to Earth. Particularly noticeable in the images are numerous whorls and eddies in the interstellar dust, which are possibly produced by effects of magnetic fields.
