Young star lights up reflection nebula IC 2631 A newly formed star lights up the surrounding cosmic clouds in this image from ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile. Dust particles in the vast clouds.

project nightflight sent in a widefield image of the Andromeda galaxy showing the pronounced warp of the galaxy's disk. The astrophotographers write: "The great Andromeda galaxy shows its true size in this photo. It spans a whopping four degrees, which is eight times the apparent size of the full moon."

NGC 7822. 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. .. pp

NGC 3576: Glowing Gas in the Milky Way Date: 28 Oct. 2013. A region of glowing gas in the Sagittarius arm of the Milky Way galaxy, NGC 3576 is located about 9,000 light years from Earth. Such nebulas present a tableau of the drama of the evolution of massive stars, from the formation in vast dark clouds, their relatively brief (a few million years) lives, and the eventual destruction in supernova explosions. Image credit: X-ray: NASA/CXC/Penn State/L.Townsley et al, Optical: ESO/2.2m…
