This image from Nasa's Spitzer Space Telescope shows a stellar nursery containing thousands of young stars and developing protostars near the sword of the constellation Orion. Massive stars light up the Orion nebula, the bright region near the centre of the image. To the north of the nebula is a dark filamentary cloud of cold dust and gas over five light years long, containing ruby red protostars that jewel the hilt of Orion's sword

Tulip Nebula, at least in the field seen from earth, is in close proximity to microquasar Cygnus X-1, site of one of the first suspected black holes. It is also called Sharpless 101 (Sh2-101) or the Cygnus Star Cloud because the nebula located in the constellation Cygnus.

Tulip Nebula - I'm pinning this for the picture. The article says we are made of star stuff. That sounds nice and poetic, but it doesn't give you any meaning, unfortunately. Star stuff doesn't care about you.

The Flaming Star nebula lies about 1,500 light years distant, spans about 5 light years, and is visible with a small telescope toward the constellation of the Charioteer (Auriga).

The caterpillar-shaped knot, called IRAS 20324+4057, is a protostar in a very early evolutionary stage. It is still in the process of collecting material from an envelope of gas surrounding it. The object lies 4,500 light-years away in the constellation Cygnus. - http://www.nasa.gov/content/goddard/nasa-s-hubble-sees-a-cosmic-caterpillar/#.U_Ej7_l5OSr - via Aftab khAn's photo on Google+

Antennae Galaxies 5x7 inch Astronomy by DeepSpacePhotography, $4.00

The merging Antennae galaxies - As the two galaxies smash together, billions of stars are born, mostly in groups and clusters of stars. I love this a whole lot
