R Aquarii is watching you.

We recently observed the amazing composite image using NASA’s Chandra X-ray data, and we couldn’t help but imagine this star in the Aquarius constellation as an "eye"…possibly an ancient Egyptian eye. Some rudimentary PhotoShop takes this premise one step further. The story behind this fascinating binary star that brings together a white dwarf and a giant red star can be found here: http://chandra.harvard.edu/photo/2017/raqr/

R  Aquarii, astronomy, cryptic and droll, eyes
