Eagle Nebula Featured Print

Eagle Nebula

Eagle Nebula. Optical image of the Eagle Nebula (M16, NGC 6611). This is an emission nebula, a cloud of gas that glows as the hydrogen gas it contains is ionised by radiation from the hot young stars within it. The stars in the cluster are about 5. 5 million years old, young in stellar terms. They formed from the coalescence of the nebula's gas. M16 is around 7000 light years from Earth in the constellation Serpens Cauda. This image was produced by a CCD (charge-coupled device) at the Kitt Peak National Observatory, USA.

Merope star and nebulosity Featured Print

Merope star and nebulosity

Merope star and associated nebulosity. Merope (23 Tauri) is one of the stars in the Pleiades open star cluster (M45). Unusually for a nebula, the gas and dust is not associated with the young stars, instead the cluster just happens to be passing through an unrelated cloud. The nebula appears blue as blue light is scattered more efficiently than other wavelengths. The nebula surrounding the star is called NGC 1435, and the part at left is IC 349. Merope, like the rest of the Pleiades cluster, lies around 440 light years from Earth in the constellation Taurus

Optical image of the Pleiades star cluster Featured Print

Optical image of the Pleiades star cluster

Pleiades star cluster. True-colour optical image of the Pleiades open star cluster (M45, NGC 1432). This cluster is about 30 light years wide, and lies 400 light years away in the constellation Taurus. The brightest stars are embedded within streaky reflection nebulae, wisps of cold gas and dust which reflect the light of the stars. These are thought to be the remnants of the gas cloud from which the stars formed. The cluster is also known as the Seven Sisters, although most people can only see six stars with the naked eye. It actually contains around 500 stars. This image was produced by digitally combining photographs taken by the UK Schmidt Telescope in blue and red light
