https://flic.kr/p/NKkiEs | Witch Head Nebula (IC 2118) | IC 2118 (also known as Witch Head Nebula due to its shape), is an extremely faint reflection nebula believed to be an ancient supernova remnant or gas cloud illuminated by nearby supergiant star Rigel in Orion. It lies in the Eridanus constellation, about 900 light-years from Earth.   About the image: Photographed in the rural dark skies of the Waterberg, Limpopo, South Africa (on a very warm Summer's evening).   Gear: William Optics…

astronomicalwonders:  A Wide-field view of the Pencil Nebula NGC 2736, also known as the Pencil Nebula, is located in the constellation Vela about 815 light-years away and is part the the Vela Supernova Remnant. This image of the region of sky around the Pencil Nebula shows a spectacular celestial landscape featuring the blue filaments of the Vela supernova remnant, the red glow of clouds of hydrogen and countless stars. It is a colour composite made from exposures from the Digitized Sky…

M3 Globular cluster M3 lies in the northern constellation Canes Venatici the Hunting Dogs. Sharp-eyed observers can spot it as a 6th-magnitude “star” from a dark site. M3 lies some 34,000 light-years from Earth. (12.5-inch Starizona Hyperion telescope, SBIG STL-11000M CCD camera, LRGB image with exposures of 230, 50, 50, and 50 minutes, respectively)

AB7 is one of the highest excite-ment nebulae in the Magellanic Clouds. It is a binary star, consist-ing of one WR-star (highly evolved massive star) & a mid-age massive companion of spectral type O. AB7 w/the assoc. huge nebula & He-II region indicate that this star is one of the hottest WR-star known so far; it's surface temp. is +120,000°
