IC 1795: The Fishhead Nebula



To some, this nebula looks like the head of a fish. However, this colorful cosmic portrait really features glowing gas and obscuring dust clouds in IC 1795, a star forming region in the northern constellation Cassiopeia. The nebula's colors were created by adopting the Hubble false-color palette for mapping narrow emission from oxygen, hydrogen, and sulfur atoms to blue, green and red colors, and further blending the data with images of the region recorded through broadband filters. Not far on the sky from the famous Double Star Cluster in Perseus, IC 1795 is itself located next to IC 1805, the Heart Nebula, as part of a complex of star forming regions that lie at the edge of a large molecular cloud. Located just over 6,000 light-years away, the larger star forming complex sprawls along the Perseus spiral arm of our Milky Way Galaxy. At that distance, this picture would span about 70 light-years across IC 1795.

Darwin’s Bark Spider


This spider produces one of the largest known orb-webs and its silk is the toughest biological material ever studied. They build their webs over bodies of water so no other spider can use it. They will use their webs to cross bodies of water as well. There have been cases of them weaving 80 feet (25 meters) of web to cross a lake. These little guys don’t usually get bigger than about .8 inches (2cm) and often go un-noticed, but they do remarkable things.

December 24th 1826: Eggnog riot begins



On this day in 1826, the so-called ‘Eggnog Riot’ began at the West Point military academy in New York. Whiskey and rum had recently been banned at the academy by Colonel Sylvanus Thayer, the new superintendent of West Point. Wishing to continue an annual tradition, and reveling in the Christmas spirit, several cadets smuggled large quantities of alcohol into West Point to make eggnog for a party. The party that began in one small room in the barracks quickly escalated out of control, eventually involving one third of West Point’s cadets, and resulted in the assault of two officers and destruction to the North Barracks. After the festivities had been interrupted by the officers, some party-goers, emboldened by their eggnog, decided to arm in defence of the barracks and fighting broke out between the cadets and officers. Christmas morning dawned with many disheveled and still inebriated cadets appearing for training. A month of inquiries, established by Thayer, aimed to punish the ringleaders of the shenanigans and led to the court-martialing of twenty cadets. The trials of the accused lasted three months, featuring the testimonies of future Confederate military leaders Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis in defense of the cadets, and resulted in the dismissal of eleven cadets from the illustrious academy. In fact, the future Confederate President Davis took part in the Eggnog riots, which did not help his reputation for poor behavior at the academy.
