1a Supernova Remnant. This undated photo shows a classic type 1a supernova remnant. Researchers Saul Perlmutter and Adam Riess of the United States and US-Australian Brian Schmidt won the 2011 Nobel Physics Prize on October 4, 2011 for their research on supernovae.

The Dragonfish nebula — named for its resemblance to a terrifyingly toothy deep-sea fish — is, like its namesake, a monster. It’s approximately 450 light years across.

National Geographic- it looks like an eye, but it's a Nebula. We are made of this awesome stardust.

The Witch Head Nebula (IC 2118) - This suggestively shaped reflection nebula is associated with the bright star Rigel (located just outside the top right corner of the above image) in the constellation Orion.   (credit: Gary Stevens)

Messier 78 - The blue glow combined with the light-blocking dust in front of our line-of-sight gives this main region of M78 a ghostly feel to it, and the evaporating gaseous globules will eventually disappear, showing off the stars beneath them that right now only an infrared telescope can see.

The "Horse Head Nebula" is in the Orion nebula (M42) about 1500 ly away. This interstellar dust cloud was formed by stellar winds and radiation and will be producing stars. This image can be seen because it is back lit by a nearby massive star-SIgma Orionis.

Clouds of Perseus ~ contains over 10,000 solar masses of gas and dust, but the eye is drawn to red NGC 1499. Known as the California Nebula, its characteristic glow of atomic hydrogen gas is fueled by ultraviolet light from luminous blue star Xi Persei. Farther along, intriguing young star cluster IC 348 and neighboring Flying Ghost Nebula. On the outskirts of a giant molecular cloud, another active star forming region, NGC 1333, lies near the edge of the wide field of view.

Finnish astrophotographer J-P Metsävainio observed IC 1396, making a gorgeous image of it. But he wasn’t satisfied just doing that. He’d been playing with making 3D images for some time, and decided this might be a good opportunity to make a model of the structure of the nebula, and then create an animated GIF of it.
