NASA released a stunning picture of the Horsehead Nebula on Tuesday.
The far off cloud – named for its shape – is implanted in the Orion cloud complex.
“Sculpted by stellar winds and radiation, a magnificent interstellar dust cloud by chance has assumed this recognizable shape,” the space agency said in an announcement.
The highlighted excellent shading picture consolidates narrowband and broadband pictures recorded utilizing various telescopes.
“About five light-years ‘tall,’ the dark cloud is cataloged as Barnard 33 and is visible only because its obscuring dust is silhouetted against the glowing red emission nebula IC 434,” NASA clarified.
The space office’s Hubble telescope caught a ravishing picture of a galaxy around 50 million light-years away prior this week.
