This celestial marvel is located around 4,100 light-years away from Earth, and it's one of the most vibrant regions where new stars are born. In this image, I've used a special colour mapping technique to provide a unique perspective where blue indicates the presence of Hydrogen and purple indicates the presence of Oxygen. This colour-coded approach helps to highlight the various elements that make up this stunning nebula and offers a deeper understanding of its structure.
