In poetry:

So, sudden, falls upon the grass
The overpow'ring light of gas,
And through the lattice streaming;
As wearily I close my eyes
Brief are the moments that suffice
To reach the land of dreaming.

In science:

It is clear from this figure that new stars can be formed in the denser part of the intragroup H i ring owing to tidal compression of the H i gas.

Channel maps of HI emission between 8 to 11 km s−1 suggest a possible association of HI gas in this velocity range with the heated ring seen in warm the IRAS temperature map.
The COMPLETE Survey of Star-Forming Regions: Phase I Data
High resolution spectra with UVES/VLT of SN 1987A from December 2000 until November 2005 show a number of high ionization lines from gas with velocities of ∼ ±350 km s−1 , emerging from the shocked gas formed by the ejecta – ring collision.
Coronal emission from the shocked circumstellar ring of SN 1987A
One narrow, nearly Gaussian, with FWHM ∼ 10 km s−1 , coming from the unshocked ring gas.
Coronal emission from the shocked circumstellar ring of SN 1987A
Because these are very useful as diagnostics of the shocked ring gas we concentrate in this paper on these lines, and refer to Gr¨oningsson et al. (2006) for a more detailed analysis of the full spectrum.
Coronal emission from the shocked circumstellar ring of SN 1987A
In this scenario most of the X-ray line emission arises where the blast wave hits the dense protrusions from the ring, forming transmitted shocks into the dense gas.
Coronal emission from the shocked circumstellar ring of SN 1987A
The interplay of the shock propagating into the dense ring gas and reflected shocks from the ejecta–CSM gives a time dependence, as well as spatial dependence, which is complex and only can be described by detailed multi-dimensional hydrodynamical simulations.

These numbers are reasonable for the conditions in the shocked gas of the ring.
