Cat's Paw Nebula

NGC 6334, The Cat's Paw Nebula, is about 5,500 light-years away from Earth, in the direction of the constellation Scorpius (the Scorpion). It extends about 50 light-years across, and covers an area on the sky slightly larger than the full moon.
"NGC 6334 is one of the most active nurseries of massive stars in our galaxy," researchers said in a European Southern Observatory statement.

The making of Venus + the Cat for 2010 MovieExtra Tropfest.

This is the making of our 2010 movie entry in MovieExtra Tropfest.

Oscar the rat took a little wrangling until I realised he liked to chase the feather duster and I could make him run in the right direction chasing it!
