You are looking at an event that happened 10,000 years ago. Before the dawn of recorded human history. The picture was taken August 19th.
This is known as the "Witch's Broom" nebula. You've seen pictures like this before, nebulas, which are expanding clouds of dust, gas and debris left over from an exploding star. This one is truly ancient. Isn't it exciting to be able to travel back in time simply by gazing into the vast universe of space time? Yeah .....
