The Sword Of Orion - The Orion constellation is noticeable for three medium-bright stars in a short, straight row. These stars represent Orion’s Belt. If you look closely, you’ll notice a curved line of stars “hanging” from the three Belt stars.

"Dark shapes with bright edges winging their way through dusty NGC 6188 are tens of light-years long. The emission nebula is found near the edge of an otherwise dark large molecular cloud in the southern constellation Ara, about light-years away.

NGC 7023, the Iris Nebula.

The Iris Nebula, also NGC 7023 and Caldwell is a bright reflection nebula and Caldwell object in the constellation Cepheus. NGC 7023 is actually the cluster within the nebula, LBN and the nebula is lit by a magnitude star, SAO 19158 - by Tony Hallas

Lac Nebula Complex (Sh2-126, LBN 437, LBN 438, ...) Sharpless 126 (Sh2-126) is a large emission nebula in Lacerta. The source of its ionization is the intense ultraviolet radiation of the star 10 Lacertae, a blue main sequence star of spectral class O9V. LBN 437 is a molecular cloud, its densest part is associated with some bright young stars, among which stands out LkHα 233, also known as variable star V375 Lacertae  - via  Thomas Henne - www.distant-lights.at

Storm of Stars in the Trifid Nebula - Radiation and winds from massive stars have blown a cavity into the surrounding dust and gas, creating the Trifid nebula, as seen here in infrared light by NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, or WISE.

A Sagittarius Triplet (June 1 2012)  Image Credit & Copyright: Martin Pugh These three bright nebulae are often featured in telescopic tours of the constellation Sagittarius and the crowded starfields of the central Milky Way. In fact, 18th century cosmic tourist Charles Messier cataloged two of them; M8, the large nebula left of center, and colorful M20 on the right. The third, NGC 6559, is above M8, separated from the larger nebula by a dark dust lane. #astronomy

Sagittarius triplet: (Lagoon Nebula), the large nebula left of center, and colorful (Trifid Nebula) on the right. The third, NGC is above separated from the larger nebula by a dark dust lane.

War and Peace Nebula, aka NGC6357, is located in the constellation Scorpius some 8,000 light-years from Earth. The Nebula gets its name because, in infrared, the western section resembles a dove, the eastern section has the shape of a skull. The open cluster Pismis 24 within the nebula contains several massive stars. Originally, scientists thought its brightest object, Pismis 24-1, was the most massive star on record (200-300 solar masses). Later surveys showed it is a binary system. Image…
