"Suzaku Shows Clearest Picture Yet of Perseus Galaxy Cluster"

Finally, National Geographic's Breaking Orbit gives us a beautiful, serene picture in:
"Night Sky News: Ghostly Light Cone on the Rise"
"Ancient Romans thought this spooky haze was due to far-off campfires below the horizon, while the ancient Greeks said that it must be caused by distant volcanic eruptions."-National Geographic
