~~Supernova Remnant Cassiopeia A (NASA, Chandra) ~ for the first time, a multiwavelength three-dimensional (3-D) reconstruction of a supernova remnant has been created. This stunning visualization of Cassiopeia A (Cas A), the result of an explosion approximately 330 years ago by NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center~~

The immense Coalsack Nebula is a molecular cloud in the constellation Crux, about 600 light-years away from Earth. Below it in this image is the Dark Doodad Nebula in the constellation Musca. It is about 700 light-years from Earth. Behind it, about 20,000 light-years from Earth, is the globular star cluster NGC 4372.

SN 1006, a supernova remnant that lit up Earth's night skies in the year 1006 A.D. Located in the constellation Lupus, it is about 7,000 light-years from Earth.

The first astronomical object cataloged by Charles Messier, M1 is perhaps better known as the Crab Nebula. It's a supernova remnant; its massive explosion visible to skygazers in the year 1054. At its center is a rapidly rotating pulsar - a neutron star - located about 6,500 light-years from Earth in the constellation Taurus.
