Herbig-Haro 46/47 - Using near-infrared light, Spitzer pierces through the dark cloud to detect the embedded outflow in an object called HH 46/47. Herbig-Haro (HH) objects are bright, nebulous regions of gas and dust that are usually buried within dark clouds
Stargazers Capture Stunning Running Man Nebula Photo - Astrophotographers Bob and Janice Fera took this image of NGC 1973, also known as the Running Man Nebula, on Jan. 2 to Jan. 4, from Eagle Ridge Observatory in Foresthill, Calif. (http://www.feraphotography.com/)
5000 light years away, in the famous star-forming region of Omega Nebula, stars continue to form. The dark dust in the center were created in the atmospheres of cool giant stars and from debris of supernova explosions. Radiation from nearby stars cause gases to glow red and blue. The points of light are young stars, some brighter than 100 Suns. Dark globules mark even younger systems, just now condensing to form stars and planets. The picture spans about 3000x the diameter of our Solar…
About 1,500 galaxies are visible in this deep view of the universe, taken by allowing the Hubble Space Telescope to stare at the same tiny patch of sky for 10 consecutive days in 1995. The image covers an area of sky only about width of a dime viewed from 75 feet away.

Tipped toward Earth and illuminated by the star, these rings look like ellipses in images taken with NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. The massive star at the center, which lies within the constellation Sagittarius, is about 7,200 light-years from Earth.
