L'ESO ha pubblicato nuove fotografie della nebulosa LHA 120-N55, generalmente chiamata semplicemente N55, scattate con il VLT (Very Large Telescope). Si tratta di una nebulosa a emissione situata dentro una cosiddetta superbolla chiamata LMC 4 e ha un alone che nelle immagini ha vari colori come un mantello che adorna stelle di recente formazione ed è composto di gas rimasto dopo che la maggior parte è stata assorbita da quelle stelle.

In this image from ESO's Very Large Telescope (VLT), light from blazing blue stars energises the gas left over from the stars' recent formation. The result is a strikingly colourful emission nebula, called LHA in .

A spectacular Hubble Space Telescope image reveals the heart of the Lagoon Nebula. Seen as a massive cloud of glowing dust and gas, bombarded by the energetic radiation of new stars, this placid name hides a dramatic reality. The Advanced Camera for.

Supergiant star Gamma Cygni lies at the center of the Northern Cross, a famous asterism in the constellation of the Swan (Cygnus). Known by the proper name Sadr, the bright star also lies at the center of this gorgeous skyscape, featuring a complex of stars, dust clouds, and glowing nebulae along the plane of our Milky Way galaxy. The field of view spans over 3 degrees (six Full Moons) on the sky and includes emission nebula IC 1318 and open star cluster NGC 6910.
