    What Glows Green In Space?


    by ELIZABETH HOWELL

    While a quest for green beer in space would be difficult, we’re happy to report there are other ways you can celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day while looking at the night sky. Just check out the nebulae and aurorae in these pictures!

    A word of caution, these pictures are taken by cameras that expose light for a very long time, sometimes using different filters, to bring out the colors. A nebula, for example, seen with our own eyes does not look quite as stunning.

    The picture above shows the Wreath Nebula, which apparently is filled with warm dust bits that are about the same composition as smog.

    speaking of green things, one time i saw this very bright green bulbous light shoot up in the night sky very quickly and then disappear. do you have any idea what that might be?

    Could have been a meteorite entering the atmosphere if it had a tail. They are often known
    to burn/glow green
