A tan sólo unos 5000 años luz de distancia, la Nebulosa de la Laguna es tan grande y brillante que se puede ver sin telescopio hacia la constelación del Arquero (Sagitario). La nebulosa majestuosa se llena de gas caliente y es hogar para NGC 6530. un cúmulo abierto que se formó en la nebulosa solamente hace varios millones de años. La imagen ofrecida fue tomada en la luz emitida por el hidrógeno (que se muestra en marrón), azufre (rojo) y oxígeno (azul) y se muestra en color mejorada…

At only about 5000 light years away, the Lagoon Nebula is so big and bright that it can be seen without a telescope toward the constellation of the Archer (Sagittarius). The majestic nebula is filled with hot gas and the home for NGC an open cluster
