Using the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope, astronomers get one of the best pictures ever taken of the stellar nursery nicknamed the Prawn Nebula (also known as Gum 56 and IC 4628). Dominating this image is part of the gigantic …
The glowing jumble of gas clouds visible in this new image make up a huge stellar nursery nicknamed the Prawn Nebula. Taken using the VLT Survey Telescope at ESO’s Paranal Observatory in Chile, this may well be the sharpest picture …
as part of the European Southern Observatory's (ESO) Cosmic Gems program, the image is dominated by a gigantic nebula known as Gum 56 - nicknamed the Prawn Nebula. It is illuminated by three patches of hot, young stars that …
The Prawn Nebula is about 250 light-years across and covers an area of sky equivalent to four times that of the full moon, but it is faint. According to ESO officials, most of the light emitted by the celestial sight is in wavelengths not visible to …
Over the last few million years this region of sky where the Prawn Nebula is located has generated many stars, both individually and in clusters, the ESO said in a statement. The space agency spoke in high regards of the image, which …
The European Southern Observatory has captured a collection of stars forming in the Prawn Nebula around 6,000 light years from Earth. Located in the constellation of Scorpius, the image from the Very Large Telescope (VLT) Survey …
The rich patchwork of gas clouds in this new image make up part of a huge stellar nursery nicknamed the Prawn Nebula (also known as Gum 56 and IC 4628). Taken using the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at the La Silla Observatory in …
Deeply immersed in this huge stellar nursery are three clusters of hot young stars -- only a few million years old -- which …
