5000 light years away, in the famous star-forming region of Omega Nebula, stars continue to form. The dark dust in the center were created in the atmospheres of cool giant stars and from debris of supernova explosions. Radiation from nearby stars cause gases to glow red and blue. The points of light are young stars, some brighter than 100 Suns. Dark globules mark even younger systems, just now condensing to form stars and planets. The picture spans about 3000x the diameter of our Solar…
Cassiopeia A (Cas A) is a supernova remnant in the constellation Cassiopeia and the brightest extrasolar radio source in the sky at frequencies above 1 GHz. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cassiopeia_A

We are made of stardust as science is now saying. You are the universe and the universe is you.
Chamada algumas vezes de “nebulosa fantasma”, a vdB 141 (também chamada de Shapless 2-136) é uma nebulosa de reflexão a mais de 2 anos-luz da Terra. Imagem: T.A. Rector/University of Alaska Anchorage, H. Schweiker/WIYN and NOAO/AURA/NSF (August 28, 2009)

This is the Herbig-Haro object, a shockwave-induced nebula created by the outflow from young star-like objects. It is a curved jet at the end of an elephant trunk-like pillar of gas in the Pelican Nebula.
