Star Observatory Spots Ultimate Madoka in Space

Cosmic spoilers:

NGC 6357 is a nebula near NGC 6334 in the constellation Scorpius, given the name War and Peace Nebula by the Midcourse Space Experiment scientists because, in infrared images, the bright, western part resembles a dove, while the eastern part looks like a skull. Well, otaku stumbled on a pic of it and decided that it looks a whole lot like Madoka Magica’s Ultimate Madoka.

Someone even started a petition asking for NGC 6537 to be renamed the “Madokami Nebula.”
