Eta Carinae underwent an unusual outburst that made it one of the brightest stars in the southern sky.
Eta Carinae, in the Keyhole Nebula, is the only star currently thought to emit natural laser light.
Now clearly visible are two distinct lobes, a hot central region, and strange radial streaks.
The lobes are filled with lanes of gas and dust which absorb the blue and ultraviolet light emitted near the center.
The streaks remain unexplained.

Dio, is Hizb'allah a regular translation of the Arabic word, or is the 'allah' a Freeper translation? If it is accepted, because I do hear reporters explain that Hisb'allah means "Party of God", I wonder if people choose not to spell it as you do on purpose?

All I hear on the MSM is why does Israel have to punish Lebannon? And I look at these pictures and see the banners of the Hezzbolah leader hanging off the buildings that are demolished, so now I know why they are bombing where they are bombing. If the libs in the drive-by media had the control that they had several years ago for all we'd know, Israel was bombing innocent Lebanese. But now, we know better!

In Aukar, at the northern edge of Beirut, U.S. military helicopters fly past a U.S. embassy security position at the former U.S. Embassy which was bombed in the '80s as Americans are helped by U.S. Marines to be evacuated.

Nice to see that they are properly equipped at that "former" embassy. If the "former" embassy has a Ma Duece heavy machine gun and a medium machine gun, nicely sited too, what does the current embassy have? Claymores and TOWs?
