The three astronomers at the orbital observatory OO-Ozone claim that they witnessed an unusual cosmic activity while gazing at the Helix Nebula, aka ‘The Eye of God’. They say that while they were focused its unprecedented beauty, it happened to – blink!
Meaning, it turned black for a split second, then its mesmerizing blue-green glow reappeared in an instant. Of course, that was only their misconception of how the universe works in terms of light refraction. Their uni-speculums absorbed whatever reached their lenses, even if it meant the dark anti-matter trace that’s temporarily orbiting the Earth. The so-called modern space junk.
Their claims could have never been taken seriously, although it does provoke intrigue how they managed to smuggle the THC-infused bananas onboard their shuttle. The report that we received from the governing body says that the maintenance team found a peel of the prohibited illegally grown vegetable and gave it to the police, who took over the case. Perhaps the influence of those narcotics made them believe the otherwise completely improbable scenario.
The astronomers (L. B, I. K., O. A) were fined with 2 years of mining carbon isotopes on Phobos.
For the laymen, the Eye of God is a planetary nebula with an apparent size of 25 arcminutes, located in the constellation Aquarius, 650 light-years away from Earth. It stretches across 5,74 light-years. It received its official name because its pattern resembles the helix structure when seen from above. It began expanding 12100 Earth-years ago, and its inner disk expands at 32 km/s, while its outer ring paces outward at 40 km/s. To a human eye, The Eye of God is one of, if not the most beautiful cosmic bodies.
