Image of part of an young emission nebula that spans 40 light years across located in Cepheus. The cluster is mostly illuminated by a star named BD+66, one of the hottest stars at 100,000 times more luminous than our sun. A young stellar nursery that is forming new stars from the clouds of dust and gas.

NGC 7000 North American Nebula a large emission nebula located in Cygnus. The nebula resembles a map of North America, with the dark lower center being the Gulf of Mexico, Mexico located in lower part of the image stretching around to Florida. The nebula and the joining Pelican Nebula in the top right are ionized by a hot O type star in the center.

NGC 7129 is a reflection nebula located in Cepheus. Light reflecting off the surrounding dust and gas from young hot new stars gives a bluish glow. The cluster consists of around 130 stars and is estimated to be around 1 million years old.

Wide-field mosaic of Messier 8 The Lagoon Nebula and Messier 20 The Trifid Nebula. Messier 8 is an emission nebula HII region in Sagittarius. Several collapsing clouds know as Bok globules are visible which may eventually collapse down to form new stars. Messier 20 is highlighted by three different types of nebula. The red parts are an emission nebula, the blue parts are a reflection nebula, and the dark bands are dark nebula which are clouds of dust and gas blocking light from behind.
