NGC 2014 (irregularly-shaped and red) and its neighbor NGC 2020 (round and blue) are two brightly glowing nebulae in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a satellite galaxy to our own Milky Way, located about 163,000 light-years away from Earth in the southern constellation of Dorado, (the Swordfish). one of the more intriguing stellar nurseries is NGC 2014 (also known Henize 55). NGC 2014 is an emission nebula – made up of mostly hydrogen gas – which contains an open cluster of hot, young…

Crimson Flares. NGC 6188 is an emission nebula about 4000 ly away in the constellation Ara. Within NGC 6188 is an open cluster of bright young stars (the Ara OB1 association) known as NGC 6193. In the bottom left hand corner is a small emission nebula NGC 6164-5. The star in the middle of the nebula is believed to have created the gas cloud and causes it to glow by virtue of the UV light it emits. That gas was likely thrown off from the star, possibly by its fast rotation. Nebula of Stars…

Thor’s Helmet Nebula - NGC 2359 (also known as Thor's Helmet) is an emission nebula in the constellation Canis Major. The nebula is approximately 15,000 light-years away and 30 light years in size. The central star is the Wolf-Rayet star HD 56925, an extremely hot giant thought to be in a brief, pre-supernova stage of evolution

Emission nebula IC 1795 / NGC 896 in the constellation Cassiopeia

From the ridiculous to the sublime

Emission nebula IC 1795 / NGC 896 in the constellation Cassiopeia

IC 1396: Emission Nebula in Cepheus -- "...while nearly 3,000 light-years from planet Earth." -- and like this, with all this beauty, my heart is won.
