This new Hubble photo shows a portion of one of the largest star-birth regions in the galaxy, the Carina Nebula.
N90 is a star-forming region in the Small Magellanic Cloud. It's located in the constellation Tucana, which is approximately 200,000 light-years away.
Witch Head Nebula
The Witch Head Nebula, IC 2118, glows primarily by light reflected from the bright star Rigel. This nebula is located in the constellation Eridanus, about 1,000 light-years away. Notice the Witch head shape.
Elephant Trunk Nebula
The Elephant Trunk Nebula is a dense cloud of gas inside a bright cluster of stars known as IC 1396. The nebula is nearly 3,000 light-years away in the constellation Cepheus. The "trunk" is over 20 light-years long.
This reflecting cloud of dust and gas has two nearly symmetric lobes of matter that are being ejected from a central star. Each lobe of the nebula is nearly 1 light-year in length. The Boomerang Nebula resides 5,000 light-years away in the constellation Centaurus.
