Pieces of Space
Every day a new piece of Space with its history. All images belong to their owners, usually NASA.
Combined image data from the massive, ground-based VISTA telescope and the Hubble Space Telescope was used to create this wide perspective of the interstellar landscape surrounding the famous Horsehead Nebula. Left to right the frame spans just over 10 light-years at the Horsehead’s estimated distance of 1,600 light-years.
