Omega Nebula in Sagittarius ( Messier 17 NGC 6618 ) - by Mike O'Day ( 500px.com/MikeODay ) by MikeODay

Officially catalogued as Messier 17 (M17) and NGC 6618, the nebula in this image is also called the Omega Nebula, the Swan Nebula, the Horse...

There is nothing to learn... some of us know that... Yes. In us... all the knowledge is available... Everything that has ever happened is present in this moment through vibration... or Frequencies... There is no past... no future... only this present moment... In this moment I can reach in... or out... and connect to all that is.

The first released VST (VLT Survey Telescope) image shows the spectacular star-forming region Messier 17, also known as the Omega Nebula or the Swan Nebula, as it has never been seen before. This vast region of gas, dust and hot young stars lies in the heart of the Milky Way in the constellation of Sagittarius (The Archer). More information about this image is available in the ESO

Los objetos Messier: La Nebulosa Omega (Messier 17) es una región de formación de estrellas en la constelación de Sagitario. De todas las regiones de formación de estrellas que podemos observar en la Vía Láctea, es una de las más brillantes y masivas que conocemos. En su interior se encuentra el cúmulo abierto NGC 6618, uno de los más jóvenes que conocemos, formado hace sólo 1 millón de años. #astronomia #ciencia

Star-birth in the Omega Nebula - Messier 17 | The Omega Nebula is roughly 15 light-years in diameter and 800 times the mass of our sun. This nebula is considered one of the brightest and most massive star-forming regions of our galaxy. Its massive gas clouds are condensing and heating to form thousands of stars. Though many star clusters are visible within the nebula, there are many thousands of stars forming outside of the visible spectrum.
