#ButterflyNebula   #NGC6302  

This is a photo of the nebula NGC 6302 taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, otherwise known as the "Butterfly Nebula" This nebula is located 3,800 light-years away in the constellation Scorpius.

Connecting the wings of the Butterfly Nebula is a dying star that is unleashing waves of ultraviolet radiation making the previously ejected gases glow. Though the surface temperature of this star is estimated to be around 400,000 degrees Fahrenheit, the star itself is hidden behind a large doughnut shaped ring of dust that appears as the dark band pinching the nebula's center.

This ring was created when the star evolved into a red-giant, and cast off gas from its equator at a relatively slow speed...estimated as low as 20,000 miles per hour. Other gasses were then ejected at higher speeds perpendicular to the ring, producing the "wings" of the butterfly-shaped structure. As the star heated up, stellar winds traveling at greater than 2 million miles per hour carved through the previous wing structure, further altering its shape.

The reddish outer edges are due mostly to light emitted by nitrogen. The white-colored regions are a result of fast-moving gas overtaking and colliding with slow-moving gas that left the star at an earlier time producing violent shock waves.

On the trip in the Azores we wanted to see the famous Lagoa do Fogo (Lagoon of Fire) as we know it would be an experience both personal and as a photographer. And it was. The lagoon is a crater lake quite high up on the island. Here we are at 900 meters and was lucky to get a clear sunny day as well. Most days you only see fog and clouds here, we actually tried it the day before and only saw 10 metres in front of us. That was a adventure in it self though!
On a technical level this is an panorama of five pictures to get the whole view, and a great view it was!
