Giant Green 'Spider' Invades Stellar Nursery in Eerie New Image

An enormous space "spider," glowing a strange and radioactive shade of green, stretches its many legs across the cosmos.
But breathe easy, arachnophobes; it's just a photo, and a pretty one at that. The image, which NASA released Thursday (April 14), shows the Spider Nebula, a giant cloud of gas and dust that lies about 10,000 light-years from Earth, in the constellation Auriga.
