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.
The Hubble Space Telescope has imaged striking details of the famed planetary nebula designated NGC 2818, which lies in the southern constellation of Pyxis (the Compass). The spectacular structure of the planetary nebula contains the outer layers of a star that were expelled into interstellar space.
An image from NASA's Spitzer and Hubble Space Telescopes looks more like an abstract painting than a cosmic snapshot. The magnificent masterpiece shows the Orion nebula in an explosion of infrared, ultraviolet and visible-light colors. It was "painted" by hundreds of baby stars on a canvas of gas and dust, with intense ultraviolet light and strong stellar winds as brushes.
