New Delhi: The US space agency NASA has tweeted out a beautiful image - a 'purple nebula' in honour of pop icon Prince (Prince Rogers Nelson), who passed away on Thursday.

The image shows a composite view of the Crab nebula, "an iconic supernova remnant in our Milky Way galaxy," as seen by Herschel and the Hubble Space Telescope.

Prince's 1984 album "Purple Rain" is often described as one of the greatest of all time.
