The Horsehead Nebula is approximately 1500 light years from our home planet. It is one of the most identifiable nebulae because of the shape of its swirling cloud of dark dust and gases, which is similar to that of a horse's head when viewed from Earth

As the weather continues to be “Stormy” along the southeast, my hopes of finishing this picture are dwindling.  Looks like I’ll add it to the list of shots to complete on the spring next year.   NGC 4725 is an intermediate barred spiral galaxy about 40 million light-years away from our home planet in the constellation Coma Berenices.
