Godzilla Head Nebula
Image Title: Godzilla Head Nebula
Source: Viking Orbiter
A fanciful view of a nebula in a galaxy far, far away. I would not be surprised if somewhere, from some perspective, there was a nebula in which the form of that city-trashing monster Godzilla was readily apparent.
Source Image Background
What does an image of a Godzilla shaped nebula have to do with Mars? The planet seen in the foreground started out as a composite of two frames taken of Mars by the Viking Orbiter 2 as it approached that planet.
I used Adobe Photoshop for the processing of the Viking image frames, the creation of the star field and nebula, and the final compositing.
I have created a low resolution, cropped version of Godzilla Head Nebula for use as a desktop wallpaper. I am making this wallpaper available for your personal use only. It is not to be modified or redistributed in any form by any means. All rights are retained by the artist.
