NGC6992 - The Eastern Veil Nebula

"The Veil Nebula is a cloud of heated and ionized gas and dust in the constellation Cygnus. It constitutes the visible portions of the Cygnus Loop (radio source W78, or Sharpless 103), a large but relatively faint supernova remnant. The source supernova exploded some 5,000 to 8,000 years ago, and the remnants have since expanded to cover an area roughly 3 degrees in diameter (about 6 times the diameter, or 36 times the area, of the full moon). The distance to the nebula is not precisely known, but Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer (FUSE) data supports a distance of about 1,470 light-years."

M57 - Ring Nebula

"The Ring Nebula (Messier 57 or NGC 6720) is a planetary nebula in the northern constellation of Lyra. Such objects are formed when a shell of ionized gas is expelled into the surrounding interstellar medium by a red giant star, which was passing through the last stage in its evolution before becoming a white dwarf.
This nebula was discovered by the French astronomer Antoine Darquier de Pellepoix in January 1779, who reported that it was "...as large as Jupiter and resembles a planet which is fading". Later the same month, fellow French astronomer Charles Messier independently found the same nebula while searching for comets. It was then entered into his catalogue as the 57th object. Messier and German-born astronomer William Herschel speculated that the nebula was formed by multiple faint stars that were unresolvable with his telescope.
In 1800, German Count Friedrich von Hahn announced that he had discovered the faint central star at the heart of the nebula a few years earlier. He also noted that the interior of the ring had undergone changes, and said he could no longer find the central star.[8] In 1864, English amateur astronomer William Huggins examined the spectra of multiple nebulae, discovering that some of these objects, including M57, displayed the spectra of bright emission lines characteristic of fluorescing glowing gases. Huggins concluded that most planetary nebulae were not composed of unresolved stars, as had been previously suspected, but were nebulosities.[9][10] The nebula was first photographed by the Hungarian astronomer Eugene von Gothard in 1886."

IC443 - Jellyfish Nebula

"IC 443 (also known as the Jellyfish Nebula and Sharpless 248 (Sh2-248)) is a Galactic supernova remnant (SNR) in the constellation Gemini. On the plan of the sky, it is located near the star Eta Geminorum. Its distance is roughly 5,000 light years from Earth.

IC 443 may be the remains of a supernova that occurred 3,000 - 30,000 years ago. The same supernova event likely created the neutron star CXOU J061705.3+222127, the collapsed remnant of the stellar core. IC 443 is one of the best-studied cases of supernova remnants interacting with surrounding molecular clouds."

NGC2264 - Cone Nebula

"NGC 2264 is the designation number of the New General Catalogue that identifies two astronomical objects as a single object:
the Cone Nebula,
the Christmas Tree Cluster,
Two other objects are within this designation but not officially included:
Snowflake Cluster,
and the Fox Fur Nebula.
All of the objects are located in the Monoceros constellation and are located about 800 parsecs or 2600 light-years from Earth.
NGC 2264 is sometimes referred to as the Christmas Tree Cluster and the Cone Nebula. However, the designation of NGC 2264 in the New General Catalogue refers to both objects and not the cluster alone."

Horsehead & Flame Nebula

"The Horsehead Nebula (also known as Barnard 33 ) is a dark nebula in the constellation Orion. The nebula is located just to the south of the star Alnitak, which is farthest east on Orion's Belt, and is part of the much larger Orion Molecular Cloud Complex. The nebula was first recorded in 1888 by Scottish astronomer Williamina Fleming on photographic plate B2312 taken at the Harvard College Observatory. The Horsehead Nebula is approximately 1500 light years from Earth. It is one of the most identifiable nebulae because of the shape of its swirling cloud of dark dust and gases, which bears some resemblance to a horse's head when viewed from Earth.

The Flame Nebula, designated as NGC 2024 and Sh2-277, is an emission nebula in the constellation Orion. It is about 900 to 1,500 light-years away."

Absolutely breathtaking photos! Thank you. I have fallen in love all over again with the Universe. I am awestruck at the complexity of the Nebula and it's multitude of prismatic colors, the birthplace of stars and the realm of dreams!
I am humbled and consumed with feelings of fear and elation when in the presence of our heavenly father's masterful works of art, every one of them
a wondrous fete we mortals have been blessed to witness. How can anyone doubt the existence of a supreme being,
a masterful creator, heavenly architect?
Everything we see has it's own unique fingerprint, reason for existing, natural order... The only thing throwing a wrench in an otherwise perfect world is imperfect man....He must love us so much to have put up with such insolence and unimaginable arrogance coupled with narcissism, blasphemy and outright ignorance! He sure has the patience only a parent could have for his wayward children, mankind wouldn't last a minute if I were in charge...Maybe it's time to show some long overdue gratitude for the gift of this life and show some Christlike behavior. We were made in his image because we were meant to image him and his amazing qualities, love, justice,
wisdom and power, the most important one being Love. Yahweh said" they will know you are my people by the love you have amongst yourselves.We are commanded to love one another,our brothers,our neighbors,even our enemies.Love is the first fruitage of the spirit. Gal.5:22 We can do it,get a heart transplant. Anything is possible when you believe! Remember, in a fear inspiring way we are wonderfully made.
