Dragon's Head Nebula ~ officially the NGC cannot be seen without very powerful telescopes; located in HII region that consists of clouds of gas that continue to glow brightly due to extremely powerful radiation emitted by young stars nearby

THE VEIL NEBULA - The Veil Nebula is a cloud of heated and ionized gas and dust in the constellation Cygnus. It constitutes the visible portions of the Cygnus Loop, a large but relatively faint supernova remnant.

Quasar- this is a black hole that is the brightest object in the universe and is thousands of times brighter than the stars in a galaxy combined! Light is shot out of either end in extremely long distances. The light we see coming from these today is very old meaning there are no quasars recently. They are all from far away but a new one can appear at any moment

Cradled in cosmic dust and glowing hydrogen, stellar nurseries in Orion the Hunter lie at the edge of a giant molecular cloud some 1,500 light-years away.

Colour composite image of Centaurus A, revealing the lobes and jets emanating from the active galaxy’s central black hole with a mass of about 100 million solar masses. Centaurus A is an active galaxy about 12 million light years from Earth, the fifth brightest galaxy in the sky, making it an ideal target for amateur astronomers. There is strong evidence that Centaurus A is a merger of an elliptical with a spiral galaxy.

Active Galactic Nuclei - Merging X-ray data (blue) from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory with microwave (orange) and visible images reveals the jets and radio-emitting lobes emanating from Centaurus A's central black hole.

Little is known about black holes but several scientists in history have developed their own theories. Here is a list of 25 crazy facts about black holes

An artist's illustration of the black hole at the heart of a quasar in the distant universe. The biggest black hole known to exist lives in the nearby galaxy M87. It's 2,000 times bigger than the Milky Way's supermassive black hole.
