Part of a stellar nursery nicknamed the Seagull Nebula. This cloud of gas, known as Sh RCW 2 and Gum seems to form the head of the seagull and glows brightly due to the energetic radiation from a very hot young star lurking at its heart.
This glowing emerald nebula seen by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has been sculpted by the powerful light of giant "O" stars. O stars are the most massive type of star known to exist. Named RCW this region of hot gas and glowing dust can be found in
Best Of European Space Agency Photos - Herchel's Image Of Andromeda Galaxy The European Space Agency's Herschel Space Observatory took this infrared image of the Andromeda Galaxy, showing rings of dust that trace gaseous reservoirs where new stars are
This image is the largest image ever taken with Hubble's camera. It was assembled from 24 individual exposures taken with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope and is the highest resolution image of the entire Crab Nebula ever made.
