Provavelmente uma das mais belas imagens espaciais, NGC 604 é uma nebulosa de grandes dimensões, repleta de estrelas em formação. Medindo aproximadamente 1500 anos-luz de comprimento, NGC 604 é uma verdadeira maternidade de estrelas, cem vezes maior que a nebulosa de Órion M42.

This is a deep image of 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.

RCW 120 is a galactic bubble that harbors a very large surprise. A surprise that's at least eight times the mass of the sun. Nestled in the shell around this large bubble is an embryonic star that looks set to turn into one of the brightest stars in our Milky Way galaxy.

The Crab Nebula (M1) ~ The first object on Charles Messier's famous 18th century list of things which are not comets. In fact, the Crab is now known to be a supernova remnant, debris from the death explosion of a massive star, witnessed and recorded by astronomers in the year 1054. This sharp, ground-based telescopic view uses narrowband data to track emission from ionized oxygen and hydrogen atoms (in blue and red) and explore the tangled filaments within the still expanding cloud.

The Crab Nebula. Reminds me of the human heart! This sharp, ground-based telescopic view uses narrowband data to track emission from ionized oxygen and hydrogen atoms (in blue and red) and explore the tangled filaments within the still expanding cloud.

It takes the Earth (and the Sun) 226 million years to orbit around the Milky Way Galaxy. Which means Earth has made the orbit around our galaxy about 20 times since the planet is 4.5 billion years old.

IC 1340, Veil Nebula closeup - http://astroanarchy.zenfolio.com/

IC 1340 is part of the Veil Nebula, a supernova remnant in constellation Cygnus at distance of about 1470 light years.

We began as wanderers, and we are wanderers still. We have lingered long enough on the shores of the cosmic ocean. We are ready at last to set sail for the stars. — 	Carl Sagan

Combined visible and infra-red light images of star forming region Sharpless This nebula is located about light-years away in the direction of the constellation Cygnus. It formed less years ago, making this one of the youngest star-forming regions known.
