Orion Nebula
What surrounds a hotbed of star formation? In the case of the Orion Nebula — dust. The entire Orion field, located about 1600 light years away, is inundated with intricate and picturesque filaments of dust. Opaque to visible light, dust is created in the outer atmosphere of massive cool stars and expelled by a strong outer wind of particles. The Trapezium and other forming star clusters are embedded in the nebula. The intricate filaments of dust surrounding M42 and M43 appear gray in the above image, while central glowing gas is highlighted in brown and blue. Over the next few million years much of Orion’s dust will be slowly destroyed by the very stars now being formed, or dispersed into the Galaxy.

And whenever I fall at your feet

Do let your tears rain down on me

The finger of blame has turned upon itself

And I’m more than willing to offer myself

I fall at your feet

The Broch of Gurness is an Iron Age broch village on the northwest coast of Mainland Orkney in Scotland overlooking Eynhallow Sound.
Pieces of a Roman amphora dating to before 60 AD were found at the Broch of Gurness, lending weight to the record that a “King of Orkney” submitted to Emperor Claudius at Colchester in 43 AD.
A broch is an Iron Age drystone hollow-walled structure of a type found only in Scotland. The word broch is derived from Lowland Scots ‘brough’, meaning (among other things) fort. Archaeologically the structures are classified as Atlantic Roundhouses.
