Artist's description:

Sometimes the dead creatures of the sea are past by without notice or interest. On this particular day in Hiltonhead South Carolina, I came across this dead jellyfish and took immediate interest. I am sure there were some folks wondering why I would want to document this strange and curious creature of the sea, that had very obviously gotten washed ashore by the tide unable to escape and laid until dying.

I remembered something about the remnants of a supernova named Jellyfish Nebula described here and so my dead jellyfish took on a new life of its own.

"IC 443 (also known as the Jellyfish Nebula and Sharpless 248 (Sh2-248)) is a Galactic supernova remnant (SNR) in the constellation Gemini. On the plan of the sky, it is located near the star Eta Geminorum. Its distance is roughly 5,000 light years from Earth.
IC 443 may be the remains of a supernova that occurred 3,000 - 30,000 years ago.
