The Flying Emu is an Australian aboriginal constellation that stretches across the southern skies. It's formed by the dark nebulae against the glowing background, rather than by stars against a dark background. (Image: Barnaby Norris) ©Mona Evans, “Nebulae” www.bellaonline.c...

The Trifid Nebula includes three types of nebula. The blue area is a reflection nebula, like the Witch Head. The lower red area is a stellar nursery (like IC 1639) where the hydrogen gas is energized by hot young stars. The dark areas that give the nebula its triffid-like look are dark nebulae like the Flying Emu. (photo: R. Jay Gabany) ©Mona Evans, “Nebulae” www.bellaonline.c...

Orion Nebula. [Image Credit: NASA, ESA, M. Robberto (STScI/ESA) et al.] It's the nearest star-forming nebula to us and much of the dust has been blown away giving an even clearer view. The image has been sharpened up by using data from both the Hubble and ESO's La Silla telescopes. ©Mona Evans, “Nebulae” www.bellaonline.c...
