On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Very Large Telescope's First Light, ESO is releasing two stunning images of different kinds of nebulae, located towards the Carina constellation. The first one, Eta Carinae, has the shape of a 'little man' and surrounds a star doomed to explode within the next 100 000 years. The second image features a much larger nebula, whose internal turmoil is created by a cluster of young, massive stars.
Being brighter than one million Suns, Eta Carinae is the most luminous star known in the Galaxy. It is the closest example of a luminous blue variable, the last phase in the life of a very massive star before it explodes in a fiery supernova.

n Kaldera takes you on a fascinating and informative journey on the subject of northern-tradition shamanism. This tradition is a blend of the ancient shamanic traditions of many of the peoples of northern Europe - the Germanic, Norse, Anglo-Saxon, and Saami, and a little bit of Russian and western Siberian.
Renowned Esoteric Researcher, Leila, joins The Cosmic Cauldron team to contribute articles and some fascinating links to a wide range of subjects. This month you can follow the links and learn all you wish to know about Shamanism and Druids.
An interesting review site. May not be everyone's cup of tea but it is interesting to read what the owner of this site has to say on the subject. Don't really know if the web owner is a pagan or not but I enjoyed
scrolling through the page anyway.
