IC 2118 (also known as Witch Head Nebula due to its shape), is an extremely faint reflection nebula believed to be an ancient supernova remnant or gas cloud illuminated by nearby supergiant star Rigel in Orion.

The Pleiades Deep and Dusty 02/25/14 The well known Pleiades star cluster is slowly destroying part of a passing cloud of gas and dust. The Pleiades is the brightest open cluster of stars on Earth's sky and can be seen from almost any northerly location with the unaided eye. The passing young dust cloud is thought to be part of Gould's belt, an unusual ring of young star formation surrounding the Sun in the local Milky Way Galaxy.

Would definitely love to see something like this at some point, Thinking Alaska? Maybe?

VISTA’s infrared view of the Orion Nebula This wide-field view of the Orion Nebula (Messier lying about 1350 light-years from Earth, was taken with the VISTA infrared survey telescope at ESO’s.

Nebulosa "El Fantasma" Esta nube de polvo cósmico, denominada vdB 141, es una nebulosa de reflexión ubicada en la constelación de Cefeo, a unos 1.200 años-luz de distancia.

It looks like the Phoenix. This is the Ghost Nebula, a reflection nebula in the Cepheus constellation. It is located about 1500 light years away from Earth. Photo credit: T. Rector/University of Alaska Anchorage, H. Schweiker/WIYN and NOAO/AURA/NSF

IC 405 is named the Flaming Star Nebula,The material that appears as smoke is mostly interstellar hydrogen, but does contain smoke-like dark filaments of carbon-rich dust grains. The bright star AE Aurigae, visible near the nebula center, is so hot it is blue, emitting light so energetic it knocks electrons away from surrounding gas.

AE Aurigae and the Flaming Star Nebula Is star AE Aurigae on fire? Even though AE Aurigae is named the flaming star, the surrounding nebula IC 405 is named the Flaming Star Nebula, and the region.

a massive interstellar cloud of dust, hydrogen, helium and other ionized gases.

Oh, such a beautiful purple and blue nebulae. I need to be careful that we don't go too 'deep space'. It's more sky and stars. But still, this is nice.

Who knew that 1,000 years could be considered young?! This black hole is estimated to be about 1,000, while the age of an average black hole in the Milky Way ranges 17,000-21,000 years old. (Photo: X-ray: NASA/CXC/MIT/L.Lopez et al; Infrared: Palomar; Radio: NSF/NRAO/VLA)
