The RCW 86 supernova remnant pendant dangles from a luxurious black voile ribbon necklace. The scene depicts the combined x-ray & infrared views of the RCW 86 supernova remnant located in the constellation Circinus. It is the oldest recorded supernova event, and the Chinese witnessed it in 185 A.D., documenting a mysterious "guest star" that remained in the sky for eight months. This pendant is silver tone, and the necklace closes with a silver tone lobster claw clasp & two inch extender chain. The artwork print is sealed and displayed under domed glass. The piece is signed by Autumn's Glory.
