Thro' becks that brattled o'er grasses sheen,

Thanking our stars we were both so green.

She never laid her eyes on a more lovin' pair

In science:

G349.7+0.2 is one of the most luminous SNR’s in the galaxy (after Cas A and the Crab; Shaver et al. 1985a), if it is located at a distance of ∼ 22 kpc (Frail et al. 1996).
OH Zeeman Magnetic Field Detections Toward Five Supernova Remnants Using the VLA
A compact source at the western edge of G357.7−0.1 is also apparent in Figs. 11a and b (also observed by Shaver et al.
OH Zeeman Magnetic Field Detections Toward Five Supernova Remnants Using the VLA
Shaver et al. (1985b) cite its flat spectral index at radio wavelengths as evidence that it is an unrelated H ii region.
OH Zeeman Magnetic Field Detections Toward Five Supernova Remnants Using the VLA
The presence of Galactic and extragalactic foreground sources, which contribute a brightness temperature on the order of ∼ 100 K at 100 MHz, does pose a serious challenge for the upcoming observations (Shaver et al. 1999; Furlanetto, Oh & Briggs 2006).
Subtracting Foregrounds from Interferometric Measurements of the Redshifted 21 cm Emission
My favorite example is Shaver’s (1991) demonstration that the radio galaxies within 50h−1 Mpc distance are close to the plane of the Local Supercluster, even though the plane is not apparent in the general distribution of galaxies at this depth.
Issues for the Next Generation of Galaxy Surveys
The question arises whether the resemblance of the cosmic star-formation history diagram (Madau et al. 1996) and the plot of evolving QSO space density (in particular the z ≈ 2.5 peak; e.g., Shaver et al. 1996) is purely coincidental.
Star-Forming AGN Host Galaxies
Oh & Mack 2003), synchrotron emission from cluster radio halos and relics (Di Matteo, Ciardi & Miniati 2004) and the Galactic freefree and synchrotron emission (Shaver et al. 1999).

Shaver et al. (1996) found that the comoving densities of radio and optically selected quasars have similar apparent evolution to z ≈ 4.
Cosmic Histories of Stars, Gas, Heavy Elements, and Dust
The LSC contains a fair number of galaxy groups (Huchra & Geller 1982) and its skeletal structure is well traced by radio galaxies and AGNs (Shaver & Pierre 1989; Shaver 1991).

However, the question of the existence of temperature fluctuations is still controve rsial (Peimbert 1967; Dinerstein et al. 1985; Shaver et al. 1983).
The direct oxygen abundances of metal-rich galaxies derived from electron temperature
Likewise, measurements of radio recombination line temperatures of Galactic H ii regions give results that are consistent with forbidden line measurements of the same objects (Shaver et al. 1983; Deharveng et al. 2000).
