Tulip Nebula, at least in the field seen from earth, is in close proximity to microquasar Cygnus X-1, site of one of the first suspected black holes. It is also called Sharpless 101 (Sh2-101) or the Cygnus Star Cloud because the nebula located in the constellation Cygnus.

Some of the most breathtaking views in the Universe are created by nebulae — hot, glowing clouds of gas. This new NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image shows the center of the Lagoon Nebula, an object with a deceptively tranquil name, in the constellation of Sagittarius.

This view highlights tectonic faults and craters on Dione, an icy world that has undoubtedly experienced geologic activity since its formation.

The Cygnus Loop - Hidden within the Veil Nebula The Cygnus Loop, or Sharpless 103, is a large supernova remnant (SNR) in the constellation Cygnus, an emission nebula measuring nearly 3° across. Some arcs of the loop, known collectively as the Veil Nebula or Cirrus Nebula, emit in visible light. Radio, infrared and X-ray images reveal the complete loop. The visual portion of the Cygnus Loop is known as the Veil Nebula (also called the Cirrus Nebula or the Filamentary Nebula). Several componen...
