Omega Nebula ~ Sculpted by stellar winds and radiation, the star factory also known as Messier 17 lies some 5,500 light-years away in the nebula-rich constellation Sagittarius. The sharp, composite, color image shows faint details of the region's gas and dust clouds against a backdrop of central Milky Way stars. (Subaru Telescope (NAOJ), Hubble Space Telescope)


This is IC 5067, it spans 10 light years and is part of a larger emission nebula 2,000 light years away. If you switched spots with this nebula and looked back at Earth, you would see Earth 2,000 years ago, you wouldn't see present day! That's because of how long it takes for the light to travel to us. 🌞 Comment any questions! image: © Data: Subaru Telescope. R Colombari.
