This delicate celestial sphere is the result of a violent stellar explosion known as a supernova. The shell of Supernova Remnant 0509-67.5 glows as a result of gas being shocked by the explosion�s blast wave, and it is expanding at more than 11 million miles per hour (5,000 kilometers per second).

The celestial spheres, or celestial orbs, were the fundamental entities of the cosmological models developed by Plato, Eudoxus, Aristotle, Ptolemy, Copernicus and others. In these celestial models the stars and planets are carried around by being embedded in rotating spheres made of an aetherial transparent fifth element (quintessence), like jewels set in orbs.
