--And therefore as a stranger give it welcome. There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”-- Hamlet, Shakespeare

Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) has a photograph of a structure that is puzzling, at least astronomers are not in agreement on its cause.  It is an image of an unusual  spiral in LL Pegasi.

There is an explanation about what is known and what isn't. The spiral is beautiful by itself but the framing of the picture makes it even more lovely.

The picture was posted on November 29,2021 and may be seen here.
