The 'new' horse head! Stunning!!

The Witch Head is a favorite around Halloween and is located in the constellation Orion, near the bright star Rigel.

A stunning glimpse of Messier 78 Nebula (NGC 2068)! other words for this photograph <pin by Cynthia Johnson>

The Witch Head Nebula. It glows from light reflected from bright supergiant Rigel - Orion's left foot! Although Rigel is blue, the nebula is blue because the dust tends to absorb the red part of the light and reflect the blue. (Image: George Greany)

The Eskimo Nebula: In its first glimpse of the heavens following the successful December 1999 servicing mission, the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has captured a majestic view of a planetary nebula, the glowing remains of a dying, Sun-like star.

Heralded as the most famous celestial band -- second only to the rings of Saturn -- the Ring Nebula (also categorized as M57) glows with impressive "looping structures," in a way that looks stunningly like a giant blooming flower floating in space. Luckily for us, the Hubble Space Telescope captured an image in beautiful detail, considering the Ring Nebula exists 2,000 light years away from Earth.
