De mooiste plaatjes kun je schieten op zo'n vierduizend lichtjaar van onze planeet. Zoals deze prachtige sterrennevel.

Fantastic shapes lurk in clouds of glowing gas in the giant star forming region NGC The emission nebula is found about light years away near the edge of a large molecular cloud unseen at visible wavelengths, in the southern constellation Ara.

(NASA) The Tarantula Zone Image Credit & Copyright: Marco Lorenzi The Tarantula Nebula is more than light-years in diameter, a giant star forming region within our neighboring galaxy the Large.

faint supernova remnant Simeis 147 (S147) covers nearly 3 degrees or 6 full moons on the sky. That's about 150 light-years at the stellar debris cloud's estimated distance of 3,000 light-years. Anchoring the frame at the right, bright star Elnath (Beta Tauri) is seen towards the boundary of the constellations Taurus and Auriga, almost exactly opposite the galactic center in planet Earth's sky.

Located only light years away, the Wizard nebula surrounds developing open star cluster NGC The active star forming region spans 100 about light years. The Wizard Nebula is located in the constellation of the King of Aethiopia (Cepheus).

A 12.000 años-luz de distancia, en la constelación de El Cochero (Auriga), se encuentra la Nebulosa del Renacuajo (catalogada como IC 410). Tiene más de 100 años-luz de diámetro y alberga un cúmulo estelar formado hace sólo 4 millones de años... #astronomia #ciencia
