Description:

Located about 3,500 light-years away in the constellation Sagittarius, the nebulae are clouds of interstellar dust and gas. Its red glow comes from ionized hydrogen gas and lit by young hot stars with nebulae. The blue part of the Trifid Nebula is a colder cloud of dust that reflects the blue light of the hot stars. Several small, round and dark areas are seen within the Lagoon Nebula. They are known as Bok globules and are clouds of interstellar gas and dust undergoing a contraction phase that can lead to star formation.
