~~Supernova Remnant Cassiopeia A (NASA, Chandra) ~ for the first time, a multiwavelength three-dimensional (3-D) reconstruction of a supernova remnant has been created. This stunning visualization of Cassiopeia A (Cas A), the result of an explosion approximately 330 years ago by NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center~~

♥ Remnant of Supernova

Massive star IRS 4 is beginning to spread its wings. Born about 100,000 years ago, material streaming out from this newborn star has formed the nebula dubbed Sharpless 2-106 Nebula (S106), pictured above. It lies about 2000 light-years away toward the constellation of the Swan (Cygnus).

Supernova Remnant NGC 2060 - NGC 2060 was a supernova that occurred in Large Magellanic Cloud and is part of Tarantula Nebula, and the name NGC 2060 is also used for the associated star cluster. It was formed by a supernova about 5,000 years ago.

A region of glowing gas in the Sagittarius arm of the Milky Way galaxy, NGC 3576 is located about 9,000 light years from Earth. Such nebulas present a tableau of the drama of the evolution of massive stars, from the formation in vast dark clouds, their relatively brief (a few million years) lives, and the eventual destruction in supernova explosions. The diffuse X-ray data detected by Chandra (blue) are likely due to the winds from young, massive stars that are blowing throughout the nebula.

1,300 light years away from Earth in the constellation Cepheus, you will find the picturesque Iris Nebula, cataloged as NGC 7023. The bright blue portion of the nebula is about 6 light years across.
