Rosette Nebula (NASA, Spitzer, This infrared image shows the Rosette nebula, a star-forming region more than 5000 ly away in the constellation Monoceros. Lurking inside this nebula are so-called 'danger zones'. These zones surround super hot stat

The hidden fires of the #FlameNebula | The VISTA image shows the spectacular region of star formation known as the Flame Nebula or NGC 2024 in the constellation of Orion (the Hunter) and its surroundings. In visible-light images of this evocative object, the heart of the nebula is completely hidden behind obscuring dust, but in the view taken in infrared light VISTA the cluster of very young stars in the heart of the object is revealed.

This image, the first to be released publicly from VISTA, the world’s largest survey telescope, shows the spectacular star-forming region known as the Flame Nebula, or NGC in the constellation of Orion (the Hunter) and its surroundings.

The Chaotic Gorgeousness of Starbirth: "This cloud is a sprawling stellar nursery, a dense cloud that’s still collapsing, fragmenting, and creating stars hither and yon. One feature of many young stars is that they rotate rapidly, and are still surrounded by the thick disk of gas and dust from which they formed. Their still-intense magnetic fields get wound up like a corkscrew, and this can launch twin beams of matter out from the poles of the star."

NGC 1333 is catalogued as a reflection nebula but is actually a diverse region and part of the Perseus molecular cloud complex. - Image Assembly and Processing : Robert Gendler and Roberto Colombari

Amateur image processor Judy Schmidt explains the process of creating gorgeous views of the cosmos from infrared data from the WISE telescope.

Nebular clouds such as the Orion Nebula are thought to be most likely environment for synthesizing and promoting the evolution of molecules needed for the origin of life. Giant gas nebulae such as Orion are storehouses of sugars that form.
