Thanks for sharing :)
I wonder what people were thinking when this happened and they could see the light? Religions started because of it?

Wisps like this are all that remain visible of a Milky Way star. About 7,000 years ago that star exploded in a supernova leaving the Veil Nebula. At the time, the expanding cloud was likely as bright as a crescent Moon, remaining visible for weeks to people living at the dawn of recorded history
I once applied for a job as a mustard cutter.

But unfortunately I wasn’t quite good enough.
