NASA Telescope Spots Cosmic Rose in Deep Space ~~ Photo Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/UCLA ~~ This infrared image from NASA's WISE space telescope shows a cosmic rosebud blossoming with new stars, including the Berkeley 59 cluster and a supernova remnant.

The bright star AE Aurigae, visible toward the lower center of image, is so hot it is blue, emitting light so energetic it knocks electrons away from surrounding gas. When a proton recaptures an electron, light is emitted, as seen in the surrounding emission nebula. In this 2015 image pictured above, AE Aurigae, the Flaming Star, and the surrounding nebula IC 405, the Flaming Star Nebula, is shown 1,500 light-yrs away and spans 5 light-yrs toward the constellation of the Charioteer (Auriga).

Colors are fabulous!

The California Nebula It reminds me so much of our Laser Starfield Projectors!

Narrow band filters and a false-color palette give these three nebulae a stunning appearance against the cosmic canvas of the central Milky Way. All three are stellar nurseries about 5,000 light-years or so distant, toward the nebula rich constellation Sagittarius. In the 18th century, astronomer Charles Messier cataloged two of them; colorful M8, above and right of center, and compact M20 at the left. The third, NGC 6559, is at bottom right. Over a hundred light-years across, M8 is also…

“ Above, right of center is the colorful Messier 8 object (also known as the Lagoon Nebula), discovered by Charles Messier in the century. Also discovered by the late Charles Messier.
