The Monkey Roars! NASA just released this beautiful mosaic image of part of the Monkey Head Nebula, showing a cloud made up of ultraviolet light hitting cooler hydrogen gas. This image is partly visible light and partly infrared, which shows interstellar dust particles heated by radiation from the stars in the middle.
Oh, wow. The Hubble Space Telescope took a new look at the iconic Pillars of Creation in the Eagle Nebula, and it is simply gorgeous.
