Christmas Tree Nebula [weareallstarstuff]

NGC 2264 is a young triangular-shaped open cluster of stars embedded in a star-forming cloud, located around 2600 light-years away in the north-eastern corner of the constellation of Monoceros (the Unicorn).

A celestial object that looks like a butterfly

Butterfly Emerges from Stellar Demise in Planetary Nebula NGC 6302 - Gas released by a dying star races across space at more than miles an hour, forming the delicate shape of a celestial butterfly. This nebula is also known as NGC 6302 or the Bug Nebula.

Simeis 147 (Spaghetti Nebula) is a large SN remnant in the constellations of Taurus and Auriga. It is the result of a SN explosion about years ago, it is 3000 light years away and about 140 light years across.what's your spaghetti policy?

The center of our Milky Way Galaxy is hidden from the prying eyes of optical telescopes by clouds of obscuring dust and gas. But the Spitzer Space Telescope's infrared cameras, penetrate much of the dust revealing the stars of the crowded galactic center region. Stars are packed together and race around the supermassive black hole that lies at the center. Our sun is located 26,000 light-years away in a more peaceful, spacious neighborhood, out in the galactic suburbs.

Hubble Captures View of 'Mystic Mountain' the Carina Nebula. The top of a three-light-year tall pillar of cool hydrogen is being worn away by the radiation of nearby stars, while stars within the pillar unleash jets of gas that stream from the peaks.

“Fighting Dragon Nebula” This is a star-forming nebula, and it is sculpted by the massive, young stars that have recently formed here – some are only a few million years old. This spark of formation was probably caused when the last batch of stars went supernova. Near the bottom right of this image, there is another nebula, NGC 6164. This is a rare emission nebula. This nebula was created when a massive star went supernova.

NGC 6188 and NGC 6164 Fantastic shapes lurk in clouds of glowing hydrogen gas in NGC about light-years away. The emission nebula is found near the edge of a large molecular cloud unseen at visible wavelengths, in the southern constellation Ara.

Hubble Telescope Finds Glowing 'Necklace' in Space. The Necklace Nebula is located 15,000 light-years away in the constellation Sagitta (the Arrow).

A pair of stars orbiting close together produced a nebula that looks like a giant cosmic necklace glowing brightly, as seen in a newly released image from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.

Flaming Star Nebula The galaxies are awesome. The Creator of the galaxies - beyond our comprehension.

The hazy and aptly named Fine Ring Nebula, shown here, is an unusual planetary nebula. Planetary nebulae form when some dying stars, having expanded into a red giant phase, expel a shell of gas as they evolve into white dwarfs. Most planetary nebulae are either spherical or elliptical in shape, or bipolar (featuring two symmetric lobes of material)

It's called "The Eye of God"...of course, space travel is out of the question...but it's mysterious and peaceful all at once...Jesus! Quit staring at me!

It's called "The Eye of God".of course, space travel is out of the question.but it's mysterious and peaceful all at once. it's not the eye of god, it's a marvellous thing
