Wolf-Rayet Nebula

A Wolf-Rayet Bubble Nebula surrounds a Wolf-Rayet star. There are different types of WR-nebula, based on their formation mechanism: regions nebulae bubbles hydrogen voids and shells (may be assoc. The nebula shown is a 'wind-blown bubbles' type

Trifid nebula

/ NGC Trifid Nebula in Sagittarius. Its name means 'divided into 3 lobes.' The object is an unusual combination of an open cluster of stars; an emission nebula; a reflection nebula & a dark nebula about 5200 light years away.

The Carina Nebula

The Carina Nebula - A Birthplace Of Stars The Carina Nebula lies at an estimated distance of to light years away from Earth in the constellation Carina. This nebula is one of the most well studied in astrophysics and has a high rate of star formation.

Located approximately 7,000 light-years from Earth and nestled in the constellation Serpens lays the ultimate stellar nursery: the Eagle Nebula. This planetary nebula is home to seven strikingly beautiful pillars, most commonly referred to as the “Pillars of Creation," because it is in these towers that new stars are formed.

The Eagle Has Risen: Stellar Spire in the Eagle Nebula. A billowing tower of gas and dust rises from the stellar nursery known as the Eagle Nebula. This small piece of the Eagle Nebula is 57 trillion miles long trillion km).

Eyes & Nebulas

Eyes & Nebulas: Windows To Our Souls - The Universe In Us . our eyes can be as beautiful and unique as the Galactic Nebulae. We’re a part of the universe as much as the universe is a part of us .

NGC 6193 & NGC 6188 (Curtis-Schmidt telescope at Cerro Tololo Inter-American Ob. Chile). NGC 6188 is an emission nebula located about 4000 ly away in the constel. Ara. The bright open cluster NGC 6193 is responsible for a region of reflection nebulosity w/in NGC6188Nebula of Stars and Colorful Gas - Long, Tall, Vertical Pins

Close up within NGC 6188 showing immense gas and dust filaments, using false color to reveal sulfur, hydrogen and oxygen in red, green and blue. NGC 6188 is located about light-years from Earth toward the constellation Ara.
