Stellare's Week-end Magnetar

There will be very few of these Week-end Magnetars, so enjoy this rare moment. :-)

PS. A magnetar is a slowly rotating neutron star where the internal magnets go bananas....

Fascinating & spectacular - and beautiful collars too!
Looks like it's more between heaven and earth, than meets the eye - after all :-)
