Through Universe Today I saw this amazing picture of the NGC 3324 nebula, which amazingly resembles late director Alfred Hitchcock‘s famous silhouette – bald head, nose, mouth and all. Although it’s fairly unlikely that Hitchcock somehow got there after his death (especially since the light from the nebula is 7500 years old), it is indeed a beautiful picture. Read more at Universe Today and the European Southern Observatory (which also produced the wonderful picture). At the ESO website you can also see a great video zooming in from viewing the entire Milky Way to the ”tiny” nebula.
