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...
