There is an Eye in the Sky

Ésta no es una escena de la película de El Señor de los Anillos. Se trata de una fotografía real tomada por el Telescopio Hubble en 2005. Y no sé por qué, pero pone los pelos de punta.

La imagen muesta a la estrella más brillante de la constelación Piscis Austrinus: Formalhaut. Es una estrella relativamente joven rodeada por una nube de polvo protoplanetaria, similar a como se debe haber visto nuestro sistema solar hace unos 4,500 millones de años. Aunque, si no tienen la conciencia tranquila, bien podría ser un ojo castigador que los está observando detenidamente desde el cielo. Y todo lo ve. ¿Me estás oyendo, inútil?

Por último, para acompañar esta imagen, no puedo hacer menos que dejarles, como fondo musical, la célebre canción "Eye in the Sky", de The Alan Parson's Project:


Don't think sorry's easily said
Don't try turning tables instead
You've taken lots of chances before
But I'm not gonna give anymore
Don't ask me
That's how it goes
'Cause part of me knows what you're thinkin'

Don't say words you're gonna regret
Don't let the fire rush to your head
I've heard the accusation before
And I ain't gonna take any more
Believe me
The sun in your eyes
Made some of the lies worth believing

I am the eye in the sky
Looking at you
I can read your mind
I am the maker of rules
Dealing with fools
I can cheat you blind
And I don't need to see any more
To know that
I can read your mind, I can read your mind
I can read your mind, I can read your mind

Don't leave false illusions behind
Don't cry 'cause I ain't changing my mind
So find another fool like before
'Cause I ain't gonna live anymore believing
Some of the lies while all of the signs are deceiving

I am the eye in the sky
Looking at you
I can read your mind
I am the maker of rules
Dealing with fools
I can cheat you blind
And I don't need to see any more
To know that
I can read your mind, I can read your mind
I can read your mind, I can read your mind

I am the eye in the sky
Looking at you
I can read your mind
I am the maker of rules
Dealing with fools
I can cheat you blind
And I don't need to see any more
To know that
I can read your mind, I can read your mind
I can read your mind, I can read your mind
