image for 'Ghost of Guy Fawkes' materialises in NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explorer image
Spook Guy Fawkes apparition in outer space is a baleful omen

Space - (X-Files mess): An image of 1603 Gunpowder Plot villain Guy Fawkes has materialised in NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explorer's imaging technology.

NASA geeks were shocked and told reporters they'd been brought up to believe that "Fawkes' celestial ghost is essentially dead".

The image has been described a "hybrid character" by Prof David Thilker of Baltimore's Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

"It's like the night of the living dead," Thilker commented.

NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explorer team say the Bonfire Night apparition is "surrounded by an ultraviolet-bright extended structure."

Previously scientists at the National Science Foundation's Very Large Array radio telescope in New Mexico claimed seeing a "gaseous ring of hydrogen that matches the ultraviolet ring observed by the Galaxy Evolution Explorer".

Meanwhile security staff at NASA's Jet Convulsion Laboratory in Pasadena say the apparition is a baleful omen for a final cosmic reckoning - "maybe in the form of a vast Buckingham Palace Hellfire Club gas bomb" - spawmed from an original a violent collision "between galaxy NGC 404 and a small neighboring galaxy 900 million years ago."

Remember, Remember the Fifth of November!
