Inside the constellation Sagittarius is the Lagoon Nebula, a tempestuous cloud of gas and star formation. See the full image below.
Here’s a beautiful deep look at a wide-field view of the Lagoon Nebula (M8, NGC 6523) and the Trifid Nebula (M20, NGC 6514) along with star cluster M21 and star forming region NGC6559. Amateur astronomer and astrophotographer Terry Hancock from Michigan says this is one of his favorite fields of view to observe.
Since time immemorial, people have looked up into the night sky and imagined that they saw animals and mythological creatures traced in the constellations above. Christian Petersen's Zoological Universe prints apply that idea to the cosmic images of modern space porn.
This colossal star nest 5000 light years away, in the Sagittarius constellation, is the heart of the Lagoon Nebula. Now, imagine you could operate the Hubble's Advanced Camera for Surveys like a gigantic DSLR camera with telephoto lenses.
