A universe that shines in all natural colors and shows off its beauty. If you look closely, you’ll see “Surprising!” You see a terrifying Godzilla.

NASA has released an image of a space nebula reminiscent of a monster.

This terrifying ‘Monster’ nebula image was shared on the 25th by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) from data observed by the Spitzer Space Telescope.

Some areas of the nebula in the picture look like Godzilla’s eyes and a protruding snout.

The Monster Nebula is located near the constellation of Sagittarius in the Southern Hemisphere and emits intense, multicolored infrared radiation. A nebula is a large-scale interstellar mass of gas and dust that helps in the formation of stars.

The Monster Nebula is almost completely obscured by clouds of dust when viewed with visible light with wavelengths visible to the human eye. But when viewed in infrared light, clouds of dust can be penetrated, allowing us to capture these strikingly beautiful images.

Astronomer Robert Hurt at the California Institute of Technology who first discovered the Godzilla shape, said, “I was observing space and only came across an area, but the eyes and snout were similar to those of Godzilla.”

“The stars that look like Godzilla’s eyes and snouts don’t know how far away they are from Earth,” NASA said. However, the bright area in the lower left that looks like Godzilla’s right paw is known as W33, about 7800 light-years from Earth.

Nebulae are often named after objects that astronomers feel are similar. The Horsehead Nebula and the Rose Nebula are familiar examples.
