More winter Milky Way treats
These beautiful images will make your eyes water without cold weather.
October 26, 2009
In the December 2009 issue of Astronomy magazine, I suggested 10 celestial objects that make good targets for beginners. As photo editor for the magazine, I see many great shots of the clusters and nebulae that I listed. We created this page so I could share a few more with you.
Another shot of the Orion Nebula (M42) shows even more detail. The bluish nebula near the top of the image is the Running Man Nebula (NGC 1973/5/7).
