Eagle Nebula

1 ноября The Eagle Nebula (catalogued as Messier 16 or M16, and as NGC 6611, and also known as the Star Queen Nebula) is a youngopen cluster of stars in the constellation Serpens, discovered by Jean-Philippe de Cheseaux in 1745-46.

It contains several active star-forming gas and dust regions, including the famous “Pillars of Creation”, photographed by the Hubble Space Telescope.
