    Reflection Nebula - This image, centred on the B[e] star HD 87643, beautifully shows the extended nebula of gas & dust that reflects the light from the star. The central star's wind appears to have shaped the nebula, leaving bright, ragged tendrils of gas & dust. A careful investigation seems to indicate that there are regular ejections of matter from the star every 15-50 yrs. The image was taken with the Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at La Silla.

    This is a deep image of the Sword of Orion - the three stars that make up the weapon hanging off the belt of this famous celestial hunter. The image showcases the amazing mix of physical and optical processes including atomic emission, Rayleigh scattering, reflection and absorbtion of light, that go on in this star forming region to create this kaleidescope of colours and details.

    Rho Ophiuchus Nebula Complex This amazing complex of nebulosity revealed on long exposure color photographs is one of the most beautiful areas of the entire night sky. It contains dark nebulae where lanes of obscuring dust hide background stars, blue reflection nebulae where the dust is illuminated by nearby stars and red emission nebulae where the hot hydrogen gas itself is glowing.

    NGC7129: star-forming region & reflection nebula in Cepheus; it is about 3000 ly away; stars in this nebula are very young, about 1 Ma old. The red blobs above & below the nebula are Herbig Haro objects, the result of jets of gas streaming away from young stars in the nebula

    Nebula of Stars and Colorful Gas - Long, Tall, Vertical Pins

    Nebula.

    Central area of the Milky Way galaxy, released by astronomers at the European Southern Observatory's Paranal Observatory in Chile. The photo shows 84 million stars in an image measuring 108,500×81,500, which contains nearly 9 billion pixels, and is actually a composite of thousands of individual photographs shot with the observatory's VISTA survey telescope.

    The Heart Nebula, IC 1805, Sh2-190, lies some 7500 light years away from Earth and is located in the Perseus Arm of the Galaxy in the constellation Cassiopeia. This is an emission nebula showing glowing gas and darker dust lanes.

    Nebula - a massive interstellar cloud of dust, hydrogen, helium and other ionized gases.
