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.

"Gabriela Mistral Nebula", another nebula that evokes a pareidolia, in this case the face of the Chilean poet Gabriela Mistral: madrigal mystery and light.

Wisps like this are all that remain visible of a Milky Way star. About 7,500 years ago that star exploded in a supernova leaving the Veil Nebula, also known as the Cygnus Loop. At the time, the expanding cloud was likely as bright as a crescent Moon, remaining visible for weeks to people living at the dawn of recorded history. Today, the resulting supernova remnant has faded and is now visible only through a small telescope directed toward the constellation of the Swan (Cygnus).

The Veil Nebula, known as the Cygnus Loop, is the visible trace left by a star which exploded 7500 yrs. At that time, the expanding cloud remained visible for weeks above the Earth's sky and bright as a crescent Moon

A beautiful end to a star’s life. X-rays from the Chandra X-ray Observatory (pink) shows superheated gas around the dense, hot core of an aging star.
