The Space Necklace

Did you hear about the photograph taken by the Hubble Space Telescope of bling in outer space?

The Necklace Nebula is located 15,000 light-years away in the constellation Sagitta (the Arrow). This composite image was taken on July 2, 2011 by the Hubble Space Telescope's Wide Field Camera 3.

I heard about it from my husband Mike, who is always looking for articles and items (in this world and beyond) related to jewelry that he thinks will interest me.
Enjoy your Sunday!
