  • A fireworks device that whirls and emits colored fire
  • a wheel that has numerous pins that are set at right angles to its rim; “he spun the pinwheel and it stopped with the pointer on `Go'”
  • A child’s toy consisting of a stick with colored vanes that twirl in the wind
  • Something shaped or rotating like a pinwheel
  • a toy consisting of vanes of colored paper or plastic that is pinned to a stick and spins when it is pointed into the wind

Supernova PTF 11kly / SN 2011fe in Pinwheel galaxy

Supernova PTF 11kly / SN 2011fe in Pinwheel galaxy
Type Ia supernova, visible from earth — the brightest visible supernova from our perspective in 40 years. The supernova was discovered by the Palomar Transient Factory (PTF) survey on 24 August 2011. The now-exploded star, formerly a white dwarf, is located in Messier 101, the Pinwheel Galaxy, 21 million light years from Earth. As I took this shot, the supernova was nearing the brightness of 2.5 billion suns.

Type Ia supernova events occur when a white dwarf star accretes enough additional matter to exceed the Chandrasekhar limit and collapse, triggering runaway fusion and a supernova explosion. Because this collapse happens at a consistent mass, the resulting explosions have very uniform characteristics, and are used as "standard candles" to measure the distance to their host galaxies.

My collection of pinwheel blocks are growing :o) I want to find one more different block, then I will begin to make these again using different colors for each block. Inspiration comes from the blog psiquilt & for many of the blocks.
