    New Image Reveals Nebula's Double Star Heart. This new image, centred on the B[e] star HD 87643, beautifully shows the extended nebula of gas and dust that reflects the light from the star. The nebula appears at the upper right. The image was released by the European Southern Observatory on Aug. 5, 2009.

    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.

Finnish astrophotographer J-P Metsävainio observed IC 1396, making a gorgeous image of it. But he wasn’t satisfied just doing that. He’d been playing with making 3D images for some time, and decided this might be a good opportunity to make a model of the structure of the nebula, and then create an animated GIF of it.

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
