The Lagoon Nebula

This view of the Lagoon Nebula is dominated by swirling dust clouds and bright newborn stars and is estimated to be between 4000 and 6000 light years away, lying towards the centre of our galaxy. For stargazers it is of particular interest as it is one of only two star forming nebulae which can be seen with the naked eye and appears as a fuzzy grey patch from northern latitudes. Seen in visible light the shimmering waters are in reality pools of hot gas, which surround the massive young stars.
