Tormentas gigantes en la Nebulosa de la Laguna (M8). Llargas 'torcedores' interestelares, embudos inquietantes y estructuras de trenzado de cuerda, en el corazón de la Nebulosa de la Laguna (Messier 8) en la constelación de Sagitario.
A perfect 10 for the Hubble Space Telescope! This once-in-a-lifetime image shows a pair of gravitationally interacting galaxies called Arp 147. The galaxy on the left, or the "one", is relatively undisturbed, whereas the galaxy on the right, or the "zero", is a messy ring of intense star formation. Image credit: NASA, ESA and M.

This NASA Hubble Space Telescope (HST) image reveals a pair of one-half light-year long interstellar "twisters," eerie funnels and twisted-rope structures in the heart of the Lagoon Nebula (Messier 8) which lies 5,000 light-years away in the direction of the constellation Sagittarius. - Credit: NASA, A.CAULET ST-ECF, ESA
The Lagoon Nebula #8 of Charles Messier’s “not a comet” list, the Lagoon Nebula is a cloud of ionized hydrogen estimated to be 4000-6000 light years from earth. It can be seen with the naked eye as a gray/green patch in the constellation of Sagittarius. PHOTOGRAPHER: Chuck Manges
afro-dominicano: NGC 7822 Processing: Francesco Antonucci; Data: WISE IRSA Archive A young star forming complex in the constellation of Cepheus. The complex encompasses the emission region designated Sharpless 171, and the young cluster of stars named Berkeley 59. The complex is believed to be some 800-1000 pc distant, with the younger components aged no more than a few million years.
