The Prawn Nebula (Picture of the Day)

Prawn nebula
The Prawn nebula (or IC 4628) is an emission nebula located in the south of Antares in the constellation of Scorpius. It's about 6,000 light years away from Earth and it spans about 250 light years across. The dominance of red in the image is due to high amounts of hydrogen. This region is filled with gas and dark dust. These are star forming regions with lots of new-born stars. This image was taken using the VLT Survey telescope at ESO's Paranal Observatory in Chile.
