This attractive scarf is designed using high-resolution astronomical images. The astrophotography galaxy image is custom-printed onto the chiffon fabric.
NGC 4298 is a dusty spiral galaxy that just happens to be almost face-on when viewed from the Earth. We can tell it contains a lot of young stars because of it’s blue-ish tint; in general, young stars appear blue whilst old stars appear red.
This high-resolution photo was taken by Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3.
