A stellar object with attitude: NaSt1 aka Nasty 1.

This huge, messy star resides in our Milky Way galaxy, and is not behaving quite how scientists would expect. Recently, Hubble turned its eye toward Nasty, and received quite a surprise. This surprise is making people think that Nasty, true to its name, may be being a bit of bully in its own neighborhood, and giving a nearby star a hard time.

Slooh will be checking out the evidence, while looking at the star live through the Canary Islands scopes. Tune in for views of this strange object, and a discussion of what happens when good stars go bad.
