APOD: photo by Farmakopoulos Antonis;  The California Nebula;  Is in the Orion Arm of the Milky Way, as does our Sun, about 1500 ly distance.  Also known as NGC 1499, is an emission nebula;  The bright star to the right is most likely providing the starlight that ionizes much of the nebula's gas; located in Perseus, not far from the Pleiades.

Mlhovina v souhvězdí Orion. Je od Země vzdálená 1600 světelných let a je pozorovatelná pouhým okem. Je v ní přes 3000 hvězd, čtyři největší v jejím středu. Další vznikají v barevném prachu.  Hubbleův teleskop má 25 let, NASA zveřejnila jeho nejpůsobivější snímky – Novinky.cz

The Carina Nebula (NGC 3324) is a 3-light-year tall pillar of gas and dust surrounding several clusters of stars. Eta Carina & HD 93129A, two of the most massive & luminous stars in the Milky Way, are among them. About 10,000 ly away, it is one of the largest nebulae ever seen (larger & brighter than the Orion nebula) the top is a 3-ly-tall pillar of cool hydrogen being worn away by the radiation of nearby stars.
