God Gives Us High Five Or Reaches For Cosmic Burrito

18,700 years ago, a supernova in the Circinus constellation resulted in a neutron star that spins seven times per second, a pulsar 20km in diameter called PSR B1509-58. Yes, it's either that or God's hand giving us five.

Or maybe it's God reaching for its cosmic burrito, like a commenter says.The image - 100 light years long - was captured by the Chandra X-Ray observatory. According to NASA, the "low energy X-rays are in red, medium energies in green, and high energies in blue. The pulsar itself is in the bright central region." [NASA]
