M7, The Ptolomy Cluster
M7 is a very bright open cluster in Scorpius. Very close to the “Sting” formed by the bright stars Shaula and Lesath. Visible on the left of the photo.
The Emu Eats the Fly
The dark Coalsack nebula and the bright star just on its border look like the head of a bird that is pointing directly to the “Dark Doodad” nebula in Musca. A strange scene in the southern Milky Way.
The Pipe Nebula
The “pipe” is an enormous area towards the center of the Milky Way where dust hides the stars in the background.

Some friendships can even transcend lifetimes…
Bright young stars sometimes sculpt amazing dust mountains soon after being born. Created quite by accident, the energetic light and winds from these massive newborn stars burn away accumulations of dark dust and cool gas in a slow but persistent manner. Such is the case of Carina Nebula. Pictured above, in scientifically assigned colors, is only a small part of it. The above image was created from archived Hubble Space Telescope data in honor of the 10th anniversary of the Hubble Heritage Project.
