IC 4628 (also known as the Prawn Nebula or Gum 56) is a large, faint emission nebula of about 250 light-years across, located some 6,000 light-years away from Earth in the southern constellation of Scorpius (the Scorpion). Hot, massive stars, millions of years young within the nearby bright open star cluster NGC 6231 (sometimes called the “Little Pleiades”) radiate the nebula with invisible ultraviolet light, stripping electrons from atoms. The electrons eventually recombine with the atoms to produce the visible nebular glow, dominated by the emission of hydrogen.Deeply immersed in the Prawn Nebula are three young star clusters which are emanating infrared radiation; these clusters, the last of which is less rich, are cataloged with the initials [DBS2003] 113, 114 and 117.IC 4628 can easily be photographed with a telescope and filters suited to the detection of ionized hydrogen. The nebula can be found just north of NGC 6231 and south of Antares, in the tail of Scorpius, out of sight from most of the USA and Europe. #nasa #jpl #science #space #astronomy #physics #interstellar #education #universe #multiverse #galaxies #pulsars #neutronstars #supernova #stars #milkyway #andromedagalaxy #cosmos #nebulas #ScienceOfTheUniverseImage Credit: Michael Sidonio

LDN 673 (Lynds’ Dark Nebula 673) is a highly fractured and very dense dark cloud complex of about 7 light-years across, located in the center of the Aquila Rift, some 300 – 600 light-years from Earth in the northern constellation of Aquila (the Eagle). The Aquila Rift forms a great mass of dark molecular clouds along the summer Milky Way through the constellations Aquila, Serpens, and eastern Ophiuchus. It consists of numerous small and large clouds, many of which have been identified and tabulated by B.T. Lynds (in 1962). Together with the Vulpecula Rift and the Cygnus Rift or Northern Coalsack, it is part of the so-called Great Rift (also Dark Rift, or Dark River), which is a series of overlapping, non-luminous, molecular dust clouds that are located between the Solar System and the Sagittarius Arm of the Milky Way Galaxy.The Great Rift appears as a dark lane that obscures the bright star fields behind it, splitting the crowded plane of our Milky Way galaxy into two as seen from Earth. These clouds are estimated to contain about 1 million solar masses of plasma and dust. #nasa #jpl #science #space #astronomy #physics #interstellar #education #universe #multiverse #galaxies #pulsars #neutronstars #supernova #stars #milkyway #andromedagalaxy #cosmos #nebulas #ScienceOfTheUniverseImage Credit: Adam Block/Mount Lemmon SkyCenter/University of Arizona

Sh2-71 (Sharpless 71) is an unusual and complex planetary nebula located about 3,260 light-years away from Earth in the northern constellation of Aquila (the Eagle). It is embroiled in a bit of controversy over its “birth parents”. Sh2-71 is the 71st object in a catalogue of nebulae originally assembled by the U.S. astronomer Stewart Sharpless of the US Naval Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona. It is from his second catalogue, of 313 nebulae, published in 1959. (In fact there are more than 313 objects as subsequent research has shown that some of the Sharpless nebulae consist of more than one object.) Planetary nebulae represent the final brief stage in the life of a medium-sized star like our Sun. While consuming the last of the fuel in its core, the dying star expels a large portion of its outer envelope. This material then becomes heated by the radiation from the stellar remnant and radiates, producing glowing clouds of gas. They are called “planetary” nebulae because early observers thought they looked like planets; but they don’t have anything to do with planets at all.Astronomers long assumed that Sh2-71 formed from the death throes of the brightest star (a binary system) which lies very close to the center of the nebula’s gas shell. But new observations have shown that the nature of a dimmer, bluer star – just to the right, and a bit lower than the bright central star – might provide a better fit for the nebula’s “birth parent.” #nasa #jpl #science #space #astronomy #physics #interstellar #education #universe #multiverse #galaxies #pulsars #neutronstars #supernova #stars #milkyway #andromedagalaxy #cosmos #nebulas #ScienceOfTheUniverseImage Credit: The Gemini Observatory/AURA

NGC 5979 is a planetary nebula of a little over ⅔ of a light-year across, located some 11,700 light-years away from Earth in the southern constellation of Triangulum Australe (the Southern Triangle), while it is moving away from us at only about 23 kilometers per second.Despite their name, planetary nebulae have nothing to do with planets. The name of planetary nebulae arose in the 18th century because of the visual similarity between some round planetary nebulae and the planets Uranus and Neptune when viewed through small optical telescopes. The name has stuck even though modern telescopes make it obvious that these objects are not planets at all, but the glowing gassy outer layers thrown off by a hot dying star.A medium-sized star like our Sun spends most of its life quietly converting hydrogen into helium. However when the hydrogen in the stellar core is exhausted, it blows off its outer shells and begins to lose mass. This allows the hot, inner core of the star (collapsing from a red giant to a white dwarf) to radiate strongly, causing this outward-moving cocoon of gas to glow brightly.Planetary nebulae last for only about 10,000 years, a fleeting episode in the 10-billion-year lifespan of Sun-like stars. So, over the next several thousand years, NGC 5979 will gradually disperse into space, and then the white dwarf, HD 140586, will cool and fade away for billions of years. Our own Sun is expected to undergo a similar fate, but fortunately this will not occur until some 5 billion years from now. #nasa #jpl #science #space #astronomy #physics #interstellar #education #universe #multiverse #galaxies #pulsars #neutronstars #supernova #stars #milkyway #andromedagalaxy #cosmos #nebulas #ScienceOfTheUniverseImage Credit: ESA, ESO and NASA

NGC 346 is an open star cluster within an emission nebula of about 200 light-years across in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) – a small satellite of our Milky Way – which lies some 200,000 light-years away from Earth in the southern constellation of Tucana (the Toucan). It is the brightest star-forming region in the Small Magellanic Cloud, and contains HD 5980, the brightest star in the SMC. The nebula contains over 70,000 stars, of which the oldest are 4.5 billion years old and the youngest about 5 million years old.The light, wind and heat given off by massive stars have dispersed the gas within and around the star cluster, forming the surrounding dramatic structure of arched, ragged filaments with a distinct ridge.The hot, bright blue stars in the center are destroying the cloud that was their stellar nursery. Their energetic ultraviolet light heats the gas, making it glow. The pink color in the image is really the energized gas of the nursery being eaten away by the intense radiation.The boundary between the cold gas and the heated gas appears as an intersecting dark ridge of dust, with a bright border that runs across the upper center and down the left side of the image, which contains several small globules that point back towards the central cluster. Astronomers have identified a population of embryonic stars strung along the intersecting dark dust ridge. Still collapsing within their natal clouds, the stellar infants’ light is reddened by the intervening dust. #nasa #jpl #science #space #astronomy #physics #interstellar #education #universe #multiverse #galaxies #pulsars #neutronstars #supernova #stars #milkyway #andromedagalaxy #cosmos #nebulas #ScienceOfTheUniverseImage Credit: Antonella Nota (ESA/STScI, STScI/AURA), NASA and ESA

The Trifid Nebula (designated Messier 20 and NGC 6514) is a star-forming (H II) region of some 40 light-years across, located about 5,200 light-years away from Earth in the constellation of Sagittarius (the Archer). It is estimated to be only 300,000 years old.Stars, the Sun included, were born within clouds of dusty gas such as the Trifid Nebula. This young nebula contains enough material to make many thousands of suns. Within it a number of young hot stars have already formed.The Trifid Nebula, meaning ‘divided into three lobes’, is an unusual combination of a red emission nebula with a young open star cluster near its center, surrounded by a blue reflection nebula which is particularly conspicuous to the northern end, and a dark absorption nebula (the apparent ‘gaps’ within the emission nebula that cause the trifid appearance; these are also designated Barnard 85). The hydrogen molecules in the emission nebula at the Trifid’s core is heated by hundreds of brilliant young stars causing it to emit red light. The dense part of the nebula is a stellar nursery full of embryonic stars (NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope discovered 30 embryonic stars and 120 newborn stars, not seen in visible light images). The star cluster, known as C 1759-230, may well be the youngest star cluster in our Milky Way galaxy.The blue color of the reflection nebula comes from cosmic dust grains which preferentially reflect the blue component of starlight as it scatters light from bright new stars that were formed nearby. The largest and hottest of these stars shines most brightly in the hot, blue portion of the visible spectrum. #nasa #jpl #science #space #astronomy #physics #interstellar #education #universe #multiverse #galaxies #pulsars #neutronstars #supernova #stars #milkyway #andromedagalaxy #cosmos #nebulas #ScienceOfTheUniverseImage Credit: R.

N214C is an emission nebula of approximately 160 x 170 light-years across located within the Large Magellanic Cloud, a small satellite of the Milky Way that lies some 163,000 light-years away from Earth in the constellation of Dorado. It is part of the H II region N214, and is a noteworthy region of ongoing star formation.Toward the middle of this star-forming (H II) region lies a tight cluster of stars named Sk −7151. This cluster contains at least 6 bright, massive stars, including the region’s brightest and hottest star, and probably hundreds of lower mass stars. These cluster stars are illuminating the nebula.Some 50 light-years north of this cluster lies a striking compact Pac-Man-like blob of ionized gas, that may have resulted from massive star formation. This spherical structure of about four light-years across is split into two lobes by a dust lane which runs along an almost north-south direction.In the gas blob astronomers discovered an impressively-strong infrared source, which means that a tremendous heat source must exist within it. Estimates indicate this infrared source is about 200,000 times more luminous than our own Sun, what means that the source is probably a very massive star that weighs about 40 times the mass of the Sun. Another explanation for the bright infrared light source could be that a 100-solar-mass star is currently being produced within the blob, but has not come out of its birth cocoon yet.Another notable area of N214C is its south-eastern border (at the bottom left of this image), which is suggesting that this reddened H II region, where new stars are being born, is in contact with a molecular cloud in that direction. #nasa #jpl #science #space #astronomy #physics #interstellar #education #universe #multiverse #galaxies #pulsars #neutronstars #supernova #stars #milkyway #andromedagalaxy #cosmos #nebulas #ScienceOfTheUniverseImage Credit: ESO scienceoftheuniverse

The Taurus Molecular Cloud (TMC) is a star-forming region located only about 450 light-years away from Earth in the northern constellation of Taurus (the Bull). The vast cloud is one of the nearest large stellar nurseries to Earth and contains over 400 young stars.Molecular clouds are dense and compact regions throughout the Milky Way and other galaxies where gas and dust clump together. The vast majority of gas in these clouds consists of molecular hydrogen (H2), and it is in these cold regions that stars are born. Since cold H2 does not easily radiate, astronomers trace these cosmic cribs by targeting other molecules, which are present there in very low abundance but radiate quite efficiently. The most important of these tracers is carbon monoxide (CO), which emits light more readily and therefore is more easily detectable.The Taurus Molecular Cloud contains numerous deeply embedded protostars with massive disks left over from stellar formation, T Tauri stars (very young low-mass stars, still in the process of gravitational contraction), Herbig-Haro objects (narrow jets of gas and matter, ejected by newly born stars at speeds of several hundred kilometers per second), and a growing number of confirmed brown dwarfs (dark substellar objects that are too low in mass to sustain hydrogen fusion). Star formation is ongoing, and the cloud covers all stages of stellar evolution.The Taurus Molecular Cloud also contains the cold pre-stellar cloud Lynds 1544 (L1544), where Herschel detected more than 2,000 Earth oceans-worth of water vapour, liberated from icy dust grains by high-energy cosmic rays passing through it. #nasa #jpl #science #space #astronomy #physics #interstellar #education #universe #multiverse #galaxies #pulsars #neutronstars #supernova #stars #milkyway #andromedagalaxy #cosmos #nebulas #ScienceOfTheUniverseImage Credit: Five College Radio Astronomy Observatory (FCRAO), Gopal Narayanan / Mark Heyer

Sharpless 188 (SH2-188, Simeis 22 or the Dolphin Nebula) is an unusual planetary nebula in the galactic disk, approximately 850 light-years away from Earth in the northern constellation of Cassiopeia.Despite their name, planetary nebulae have nothing to do with planets. The name of planetary nebulae arose in the 18th century because of the visual similarity between some round planetary nebulae and the planets Uranus and Neptune when viewed through small optical telescopes. The name has stuck even though modern telescopes make it obvious that these objects are not planets at all.When a star with a mass up to eight times that of the Sun runs out of fuel at the end of its life, it blows off its outer shells and begins to lose mass. This allows the hot, inner core of the star (collapsing from a red giant to a white dwarf) to radiate strongly, causing this outward-moving cocoon of gas to glow brightly.Planetary nebulae last for only about 10,000 years, a fleeting episode in the 10-billion-year lifespan of Sun-like stars. So, over the next several thousand years, SH2-188 will gradually disperse into space, and then the white dwarf will cool and fade away for billions of years. Our own Sun is expected to undergo a similar fate over about 5 billion years from now.The expanding gas from SH2-188 has a nearly circular shape, but is much brighter to the southeast (lower left). This is because the rapidly moving central star – at about125 km/s – is s creating a bow shock in that direction in the surrounding interstellar medium. Faint wisps of gas can also be seen in the opposite direction, which will eventually dissipate away. SH2-188 is considered to be one of the best examples of interaction between a planetary nebula with the interstellar medium. #nasa #jpl #science #space #astronomy #physics #interstellar #education #universe #multiverse #galaxies #pulsars #neutronstars #supernova #stars #milkyway #andromedagalaxy #cosmos #nebulas #ScienceOfTheUniverseImage Credit: T.A.

Messier 43 (also known as NGC 1982 or De Mairan’s Nebula, after its discoverer Jean-Jacques Dortous de Mairan) is a star-forming (H II) region of some 3 light-years across that lies about 1,600 light-years away from Earth in the Orion Arm of our Milky Way galaxy, in the constellation of Orion (the Hunter). This comma-shaped emission and reflection nebula is an outer part of the famous Orion Nebula (Messier 42), separated from the much larger main nebula by only a dark dust lane. Both nebulae are part of the massive stellar nursery called the Orion Molecular Cloud complex, which includes several other nebulae, such as the Horsehead Nebula (Barnard 33) and the Flame Nebula (NGC 2024). The Orion Molecular Cloud complex is one of the closest massive star-forming regions to Earth.Messier 43 surrounds the massive, young, variable star HD 37061 (also known as NU Orionis). Apparently, the nebula of dust and gas is sculpted and illuminated by this star, which is quite cool for a central star of an H II region, and accounts for the comparatively low luminosity of the nebula at all wavelengths. However, this star is far from being alone…. Messier 43 contains its own, separate small cluster of stars, and the whole Orion Molecular Cloud complex is littered with stars being born.This picture shows several of the brilliant hot young stars in this less-studied region of the Orion Nebula.The image is a part of one of the most detailed astronomical images ever produced of the Orion Nebula, which took 105 Hubble orbits to complete. All imaging instruments aboard the Hubble Space Telescope – the ACS, Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2, and Near Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer – were used simultaneously to study the Orion nebula. #nasa #jpl #science #space #astronomy #physics #interstellar #education #universe #multiverse #galaxies #pulsars #neutronstars #supernova #stars #milkyway #andromedagalaxy #cosmos #nebulas #ScienceOfTheUniverseImage Credit: NASA, ESA, M.

The Horsehead Nebula (Barnard 33), a diffuse dark nebula and, to its lower left, the 4 light-years wide bright blue reflection nebula NGC 2023 both lie about 1,500 light-years away from Earth. They are part of the Orion Molecular Cloud Complex, a star-forming region that covers large parts of the constellation Orion (the Hunter). Such stellar nurseries can contain over 100 known organic and inorganic gases as well of dust consisting of large and complex organic molecules.The Horsehead Nebula is one of the most identifiable nebulae because of the shape of its swirling cloud of dark dust and gas, which is similar to that of a horse’s head when viewed from Earth. The dark molecular cloud is visible only because its obscuring dust is silhouetted against the bright emission nebula IC 434 which is illuminated by the nearby bright, hot blue star Sigma Orionis.The darkness of the Horsehead is caused mostly by thick dust and gas, but also by the complex blocking the light of stars behind it. The heavy concentrations of dust in the nebula results in alternating sections of nearly complete opacity and transparency.Bright spots in the Horsehead Nebula’s base are young stars just in the process of forming. One infant star is visible as a partly shrouded glow in horse’s brow. The visible heart of the nebula emerges from the gaseous complex to serve as an active site of the formation of low-mass stars.The Horsehead Nebula is rotating. The radio waves are Doppler shifted as different parts of the nebula move toward or away from us, producing either a blueshift or a redshift. The horse’s nose is turning toward us and part of the mane is turning away–as if the horse were trying to look in our direction. #nasa #jpl #science #space #astronomy #physics #interstellar #education #universe #multiverse #galaxies #pulsars #neutronstars #supernova #stars #milkyway #andromedagalaxy #cosmos #nebulas #ScienceOfTheUniverseImage Credit: ESO/J.
