What part of the sky is that in then?

It's a supernova that can be seen in the Chim-Chim-Cheree nebula. If the forecast for tonight is accurate, I hope to be Poppins out to see it a bit later.

(Will that do?)

Supernovaexplodedicius maybe. There are some planetary nebulae in the pic. Too small in this version too see though.

The galactic centre. Which I renamed as Stars and Silhouettes came third in the Astrophotographer of the year last night at the royal observatory in Greenwich for the Stars and Nebulae category.  It was a good night out and again today where we got to have our own planetarium show. 

Hello to all I meet there  

Tom.

Great to see it here, great to have it hanging on one of our bedroom walls. I look at it for hours, our guests look at it for hours. Lots of people appreciate this stunning image.

Don't you think it's a bit creepy sneaking into your guests room whilst they sleep to stare at this ;)
Truelly wonderful Tom. I shan't try to wax lyrical as it won't do it justice anyway.

Hehheh, if the guest were Tom I wouldn't let him see me admiring the image. I have to keep him on his toes...
