I thought this was pretty funny. This is a picture of the North American Nebula. The caption at the NASA website reads as follows:
Specifically, in analogy to the Earth-confined continent, the bright part that appears as Central America and Mexico is actually a hot bed of gas, dust, and newly formed stars known as the Cygnus Wall.Hotbed of gas and dust...yeah, that's about right. It also stated that the North American Nebula can form stars. The parallels are astounding.
