The Soul Nebula (IC 1848) IC 1848 is rather a large emission nebula in the constellation Cassiopeia. It is often referred to as the “Embryo Nebula” because of its characteristic shape. Because of its neighbor to the SE, IC 1805(Heart Nebula), reference to them both is The Heart & Soul. Credit: Azin Dark Skies

The Soul Nebula (IC is a fairly large emission nebula in the constellation Cassiopeia. It is often referred to as the “Embryo Nebula” because of its characteristic shape. Its neighbour is IC 1805 (the Heart Nebula). Photo by Azin Dark Skies.

Heart Nebula

That's a LOT of red. The Heart Nebula, IC lies some 7500 light years away from Earth and is located in the Perseus Arm of the Galaxy in the constellation Cassiopeia. This is an emission nebula showing glowing gas and darker dust lanes.

The caterpillar-shaped knot, called #IRAS20324+4057, is a #protostar in a very early evolutionary stage. It is still in the process of collecting material from an envelope of gas surrounding it. The object lies 4,500 light-years away in the constellation Cygnus. - http://www.nasa.gov/content/goddard/nasa-s-hubble-sees-a-cosmic-caterpillar/#.U_Ej7_l5OSr.

Reflection Nebula NGC 2170 in the constellation Monoceros. Discovered October 16, 1784 by William Hersch.

NGC 2170 is a reflection nebula in the constellation Monoceros. It was discovered on October 1784 by William Herschel.

For the first time, researchers are seeing how white dwarf systems evolve directly confirmed in the night sky using NASA's Kepler space telescope. The star, white dwarf WD 1145+017, is currently destroying and disintegrating an orbiting planet bit by bit. Scientists are watching the death of a solar system. This particular white dwarf star is about 570 light-years from Earth in the constellation Virgo. (Oct 22, 2015; Journal of Science)

A stellar nursery, this is the nebula in the Orion constellation.

Stars Adorn Orion's Sword

Nasa's Spitzer Space Telescope shows a stellar nursery containing thousands of young stars and developing protostars near the sword of the constellation Orion. Massive stars light up the Orion nebula, the bright region near the center of the image.

NGC 474 is an elliptical galaxy in the constellation Pisces. This large galaxy is known to possess tidal tails, although their origins remain unknown. These tidal tails may be related to debris left over from absorbing numerous small galaxies in the past.

#PumpkinNebula, also known as #RottenEggNebula or technical name 231.84 4.22 OH, is a planetary #protonebulosa located in the constellation Puppis. Call pumpkin Nebula because of its peculiar shape. The other nickname, Rotten Egg Nebula, refers to the large amount of sulfur compounds present in it.
