    ♥ Bubble Nebula

    This image from Nasa's Spitzer Space Telescope shows a stellar nursery containing thousand of young stars & developing protostars near the sword of the constellation Orion.

    The Butterfly Nebula - NGC 6302 (also called the Bug Nebula, Butterfly Nebula, or Caldwell 69) is a bipolar planetary nebula in the constellation Scorpius. The structure in the nebula is among the most complex ever observed in planetary nebulae. The spectrum of NGC 6302 shows that its central star is one of the hottest stars in the galaxy, with a surface temperature in excess of 200,000 K, implying that the star from which it formed must have been very large.

    The Crab Nebula

    Thor’s Helmet Nebula; distance: 15,000 light years, 30 light years across, central star is pre-supernova, constellation Canis Major

    ♥ Witch's Broom Nebula. How can we look at photos taken of outer space, and not be totally AWE STRUCK???

    This Hubble Space Telescope (HST) image reveals a pair of one-half light-year long interstellar 'twisters' - eerie funnels and twisted-rope structures - in the heart of the Lagoon Nebula (Messier 8) which lies 5,000 light-years away in the direction of the constellation Sagittarius.

    The strikingly unusual planetary nebula, NGC 6751. Glowing in the constellation Aquila like a giant eye, the nebula is a cloud of gas ejected several thousand years ago from the hot star visible in its center.

    The Butterfly nebula, NGC 6302, lies about 4,000 light-years away in the constellation Scorpius.


    The Angels Dance Nebula

    This is the loveliest of all the nebulas I have seen from Nasa.

    One more picture of Helix nebula (NGC 7293). This one got a huge image post-processing: the result is stunning, with detail and hue nuances rarely seen.
