Space Saturday XXVIII

I’m back once again with the next edition of Space Saturday! This week I bring you an emission and reflection nebula in NGC 2170:

Small (448×336) - Medium (1024×768) - Large (1600×1200)

The red areas of this image are emission nebulae, the blue areas are reflection nebulae (along with the darker absorption nebulae). Two different processes going on that result in a beautiful photograph. Russell Croman has taken this beautiful image for us to enjoy!

Check out my Space Saturday Archive for more astronomy images.
