By the time you read this, Christmas 2011 will have passed by. To help you prepare for the new year, this week’s After Christmas edition provides some visual food for thought, the remains of which won’t end up on your hips or waist. We hope you enjoy our Monday Madeleines and that you’ll leave a comment!

Here’s an amazing pic of Barnard 3, a dusty, gassy region of the galaxy about a thousand light years away from NASA’s WISE observatory. If you stare at it long enough, the red splotch in the image will either resemble something or make you dizzy – you decide. Thanks to @LoriMoreno for sharing this.

If nothing else, this will keep you in the winter holiday spirit. It’s a picture of an old paddy wagon in Oregon amidst the frozen frog (would that be considered ‘frog’?). Another great pic shared with us by @OregonArtGuy.

Cat and caffeine lovers alike are sure to appreciate this photo and its accompanying text. Maybe after a long night of partying, it’s just what’s needed. Thanks to @BundlePost (Robert Caruso) for this stimulating graphic.

Video of the Week

Here’s some interesting imagery captured by International Space Station Commander Dan Burbank of Comet Lovejoy last week. His description of what’s depicted follows the amazing shots captured here, a small subset of the collection they captured and hope to publish in the future.
