This picture of a young nebula is the host of many young stars and solar systems. Commonly referred to as the Pacman Nebula, it is probably one of the coolest nebula in the galaxy. Unlike some space pictures, this picture was taken using a composite of narrow bands of visible light. The holes in the nebula are places of star formation.
