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.

Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2015: This planetary nebula PK 329-02.2 (AKA Menzel 2, or Mz 2) lies in the constellation of Norma in the southern sky.

The Hubble Space Telescope took a picture of the planetary nebula PK also known as ESO or Hen and commonly called Menzel 2 (Mz because it was discovered by the astronomer Donald Menzel in Read the details in the article!

Keyhole Nebula - A portion of the Carina Nebula is known as the Keyhole Nebula (NGC 3324), a name given to it by John Herschel in the 19th century.  The Keyhole Nebula is actually a much smaller and darker cloud of cold molecules and dust, containing bright filaments of hot, fluorescing gas, silhouetted against the much brighter background nebula.

A portion of the Carina Nebula is known as the Keyhole Nebula (NGC the name that was given by John Herschel in the century.

NGC 6537: the Red Spider Nebula is a planetary nebula in the constellation Sagittarius. The central white dwarf, the remaining compact core of the original star, produces a powerful and hot (≈10,000 K) wind blowing with a speed of 300 kilometers per second, which has generated waves 100 billion kilometres high. The star at the center of the Red Spider Nebula is surrounded by a dust shell. Surface temperature is probably 150,000-250,000 K. Distance estimated as 1900 light years. (Wikipedia)

Red Spider Planetary Nebula The Red Spider Planetary Nebula shows the complex structure that can result when a normal star ejects its outer gases and becomes a white dwarf star.

Supernova N49 (NASA, Chandra, 11/29/2006)

This is a composite image of the brightest supernova remnant in optical light in the Large Magellanic Cloud. The Chandra X-ray image (blue) shows million-degree gas in the center. Much cooler gas at the outer parts of the remnant is seen in.
