¿Una estela de una estrella?  Científicos se sorprenden al descubrir que una estrella que viaja muy rápido, pueda dejar una especie de huella de condensación. Mira (MY-rah) es una estrella que los científicos han estudiando durante 400 años. El telescopio Galaxy Evolution Explorer de la NASA capturó una imagen de Mira. Mostró que Mira tiene una larga cola de polvo y gas ¡que mide 13 años luz de largo! ¡Esto es 20,000 veces la distancia media entre el Sol y Plutón!
