Vela Supernova

Today we’re working on a star ceiling for our movie-room-to-be. Because the fiber optic cable might be a little hard to work with, we’re not going to try to replicate the night sky, but we are going to include “our” constellations from the zodiac (Even though I don’t particularly care for astrology). And we wanted it to look like stars even with the lights off. So I was also trying to think of what to paint on the ceiling, when I remembered the Vela Supernova Remnant. One of my friends had pointed it out to me several months back thinking the name was a funny coincident given the whole SuperNovia thing. I’m hoping I can figure out how to do this in paint. 😀
