Artists have placed a giant poster depicting a child’s face in an area of Pakistan where US drone attacks occur. The project is called #NotABugSplat. This is in response to drone operators who refer to casualities as bug splats, cause from afar, viewed on monitors, that’s all the victims look like. The artists are hoping to have more artworks placed across Pakistan where drone strikes are frequent to help humanise victims to the strikers and the world.
vdB 141 is a reflection nebula located in the constellation Cepheus.
Sometimes referred to as the ghost nebula, its awkward name is its catalog number in Sidney van den Bergh’s catalog of reflection nebulae, published in 1966.
Several stars are embedded in the nebula. Their light gives it a ghoulish brown color.
