A Wide-field view of the Pencil Nebula
NGC 2736, also known as the Pencil Nebula, is located in the constellation Vela about 815 light-years away and is part of the Vela Supernova Remnant. This image of the region of sky around the Pencil Nebula shows a spectacular celestial landscape featuring the blue filaments of the Vela supernova remnant, the red glow of clouds of hydrogen and countless stars. It is a colour composite made from exposures from the Digitized Sky Survey 2.

Baked Zucchini Chips 4 Ways…RECIPE
This picture was taken 2 years ago in Valencia, when I decided that I wanted to build my career around traveling and immersing myself in different cultures. I fell in love with Spain then, and I am so blessed to be able to move there for the next 1-3 years and work as an English Teaching Assistant in Cantabria. I’ll be working in an elementary school (specifically with kindergarteners-4th graders). If you could all keep me in your thoughts/prayers over the next 48 hours as I cross the Atlantic, I’d really appreciate it.
Also, if you’d like to see what I’ll be up to, follow me on instagram! It’s pretty barren at the moment, but don’t you worry, I’m working on it. @themadhafner
