God is a jackrabbit

From an image recently released by a team working with the Hubble and Spitzer Space Telescopes probing the center of our galaxy:

Celestial Jackrabbit

As you can see, the very center of our galaxy is inhabited by a giant spectral jackrabbit, who I have no choice but to assume is the ruler of the universe. Fortunately I happen to have been born in a 兔年, 1987, according the Chinese zodiac, so I can hope for a great deal of power and influence in the future.

Of course I’m being flippant here and the image is merely an example of a pareidolia, but I thought it was interesting nonetheless.

Hat tip to Phil Plait at Bad Astronomy for the image.

    That took me a bit to see the rabbit. Awfully big ears you have there, Meng. 🙂
