Amazing Universe

Sombero Galaxy - 28 million lightyears from Earth.
800 billion suns and 50,000 lightyears across.

Cone Nebula - 2.5 lightyears in length.
(like taking 23 million trips to the moon)

Looks like a painting, doesn't it?
Small region of the Swan Nebula
5,500 lightyears away
bubbling ocean of hydrogen,

Swirling cores of two galaxies merging in Canus Major constellation.

We live in an amazing universe.
