The Great Nebula in Orion, an immense, nearby starbirth region, is probably the most famous of all astronomical nebulas. Here, glowing gas surrounds hot young stars at the edge of an immense interstellar molecular cloud only 1500 light-years away

Rosette Nebula Stardust I have a big dream about music. It's like a galaxy and I want to realize and all the people hear my voice on the earth!

This is a deep image of the Sword of Orion   - the three stars that make up the weapon hanging off the belt of this famous   celestial hunter. The image showcases the amazing mix of physical and optical   processes including atomic emission, Rayleigh scattering, reflection and   absorbtion of light, that go on in this star forming region to create this   kaleidescope of colours and details.

The Eagle Nebula. It measures 70 light years x 55 light years, light travels at an incredible 186,000 miles per second, you do the maths. It's mind blowing, then think that it's just one tiny part of our galaxy which in turn is one very tiny part of our universe..... Feeling generous?

The small open star cluster Pismis 24 lies in the core of the large emission nebula NGC 6357 in Scorpius, about light-years away from Earth.

This object is a billowing tower of cold gas and dust rising from a stellar nursery called the Eagle Nebula. The Eagle nebula is giving birth to stars, light-years distant from us, the soaring tower is light-years or about 90 trillion kilometers tall.

I think no night was ever quite so still, So smoothly lit with red along the west, So deeply hushed with quiet through and through. And strangely clear, and deeply dyed with light, The trees stood straight against a paling sky, With Venus burning lamp-like in the west. -  Sara Teasdale, excerpt of Guenevere

♥ I just love looking at M 42, the Orion Nebula. .. One of the most prominent emission nebulas visible to the naked eye and a good pair of binoculars.

Galactic Wreckage in Stephan's Quintet - A clash among members of a famous galaxy quintet reveals an assortment of stars across a wide color range, from young, blue stars to aging, red stars. This group is also known as the Hickson Compact Group 92

Keyhole Nebula - A portion of the Carina Nebula is known as the Keyhole Nebula (NGC 3324), a name given to it by John Herschel in the 19th century.  The Keyhole Nebula is actually a much smaller and darker cloud of cold molecules and dust, containing bright filaments of hot, fluorescing gas, silhouetted against the much brighter background nebula.
