The small open star cluster Pismis 24 lies in the core of the large emission nebula NGC 6357 in Scorpius, about light-years away from Earth.

A celestial object that looks like a butterfly

Butterfly Emerges from Stellar Demise in Planetary Nebula NGC 6302 - Gas released by a dying star races across space at more than miles an hour, forming the delicate shape of a celestial butterfly. This nebula is also known as NGC 6302 or the Bug Nebula.

Visible View of Pillar and Jets HH 901/902

This NASA Hubble Space Telescope image, which is even more dramatic than fiction, captures the chaotic activity atop a three-light-year-tall pillar of gas and dust that is being eaten away by the brilliant light from nearby bright stars
