Astronomy Tuesday

It's always a lovely day for a nebula.

This view of the Penguin Nebula was created from the light emitted by sulfur, hydrogen, and oxygen, to better display the ionization front -- that orange band on the right -- where the heat from young stars is gradually warming up the cold gases. (Compare with this image I posted several years ago.)
