Stars are forming in the Soul of the Queen of Aethopia. A large star forming region called the Soul Nebula can be found in the direction of the constellation Cassiopeia, who Greek mythology credits as the vain wife of a King who ruled lands surrounding the upper Nile river. The Soul Nebula houses several open clusters of stars, a large radio source known as W5, and huge evacuated bubbles formed by the winds of young massive stars.

NGC 1360 is a planetary nebula in the constellation of Fornax. It is about 1145 ly from Earth. It was identified as a planetary nebula due to its radiation in the OIII (oxygen) bands. Reddish matter, believed to have been ejected from the original star before its final collapse, is visible in images.

The Wich Head Nebula (IC 2118) is a reflection nebula about 1000 ly away in Orion. Its glow is derived from light reflected from the star Rigel.

With the recent announcement that their may be a habitable planet just 12 light-years away from Earth, the question keeps getting asked – just how far are the closest solar systems to our own planet? This graphic created by Space.com shows that – the closest stars and their accompanying solar systems – giving us a better perspective of what’s out there in the neighborhood for us to explore.
