IC 4628: The Prawn Nebula 🔭 . Follow us for more! @thehubblescope ⭐️ . South of Antares, in the tail of the nebula-rich constellation Scorpius, lies emission nebula IC 4628. Nearby hot, massive stars, millions of years young, irradiate the nebula with invisible ultraviolet light, stripping electrons from atoms. The electrons eventually recombine with the atoms to produce the visible nebular glow, dominated by the red emission of hydrogen. At an estimated distance of 6,000 light-years, the region shown is about 250 light-years across, spanning an area equivalent to four full Moons on the sky. The nebula is also cataloged as Gum 56 for Australian astronomer Colin Stanley Gum, but seafood-loving astronomers might know this cosmic cloud as the Prawn Nebula. © APOD (NASA) . #space #universe #astronomy #interstellar #nature #science #cosmology #stars #nasa #world #photography #outerspace #nebula #cosmos #hubbletelescope #explore #galaxy @thehubblescope thehubblescope The Hubble Scope

Wow ! For me, the hubble is the best telescope because he was under the cloud and the light poollution so, he can take photo all the times. I have photo on my pahes to, i lobe nasa and space. Thank you @thehubblescope for your work ans your photo. Bye ! 🌌
