Close-up view of the head of the Seagull Nebula by European Southern Observatory on Flickr.
Via Flickr: This image from ESO’s La Silla Observatory shows part of a stellar nursery nicknamed the Seagull Nebula. This cloud of gas, known as Sh 2-292, RCW 2 and Gum 1, seems to form the head of the seagull and glows brightly due to the energetic radiation from a very hot young star lurking at its heart. The detailed view was produced by the Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope. More information: www.eso.org/public/images/eso1237a/ Credit: ESO
