"Space cats" keep photobombing astronomical photos

(CBS) - Working in a space-related profession has many perks, but comes with the unfortunate problem of having to deal with space cats. "Space what?" you're probably asking. Well, why don't you watch this informative video to find out. 

The tongue-in-cheek video highlighting a furry feline phenomenon was posted by YouTube user andyfreeberg who writes:

Brant Widgeon is an Astronomical Image Enhancement Engineer. Many people are surprised to hear everything that goes into making the beautiful celestial images that have brought us so much awe and wonder. One of the most technically difficult parts of Brant's job however is dealing with space cats.

Can you even imagine what people like Brant must have had to go through before there was Photoshop?
