There are Clouds of Alcohol in Outer Space

Clouds of gas floating through space are common, and generally not subject to discussion on booze-blogs. Or are they?

In November I touched on an ethanol cloud at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy that contains compounds known to taste like rum, and smell like raspberries.

Evidently, near the Aquila constellation, there is another enormous cloud of alcohol 1,000 times the size of our galaxy. It contains the equivalent amount of ethanol as 400 trillion pints of beer.

Cosmic Rum

Speckled throughout its expanse the universe contains fascinating objects like: planets, stars, comets, black holes, and…alcoholic clouds? Apparently there are massive gaseous ethanol and methanol formations out there.

Near the center of the Milky Way Galaxy there is one such alcoholic cloud that contains compounds which are known to taste like Raspberries, and smell like Rum.
