Sometimes it's nice to leave a trail of art behind us, revising as new information either becomes available or is found out by the artist:

Mass of Incandescent gas?

Or miasma of incandescent plasma?

But to the larger point I think it's a fool that points out the factual fallibility of a poem. Often language and terminology are used evocatively, such is my guess with the "cuttlefish."
