Trifid nebula in cotton wool

I was playing late last night with some cotton wool I bought, just to see if I could use it in animations. First I was testing to create a nightly thunder scene with a torch, but then I noticed how lovely the torch I hid under the pile of cotton wool was showing the light texture of the wool itself in the photos I took. It actually looked very much like a nebula would look like through a big telescope. I added another torch and a piece of red paper on top of it and suddenly the whole thing started to represent the Trifid Nebula in Sagittarius... Absolutely awesome!
