Melotte 15 in the Heart - Cosmic clouds seem to form fantastic shapes in the central regions of emission nebula IC 1805. Of course, the clouds are sculpted by stellar winds and radiation from massive hot stars in the nebula's newborn star cluster, Melotte 15. About 1.5 million years young, the cluster stars are toward the right in this colorful skyscape, along with dark dust clouds in silhouette against glowing atomic gas. A composite of narrow and broad band telescopic images, the view spans about 30 light-years and includes emission from hydrogen in green, sulfur in red, and oxygen in blue hues. Wider field images reveal that IC 1805's simpler, overall outline suggests its popular name - The Heart Nebula. IC 1805 is located about 7,500 light years away toward the constellation Cassiopeia

A cluster-balloonist who became the first to scale the English Channel is taking on the challenge of a lifetime by attempting to cross the ATLANTIC. Intrepid Jonathan Trappe, 38, plans to fly an incredible 2,500 miles across the pond next summer in a seven foot lifeboat carried by 365 huge helium balloons. The public can support his inspirational journey by contributing towards a 0,000 appeal to fund the expensive helium and special UV resistant balloons he will need for his record-breaking flight.
