Type - Emission (red), reflection (blue) and dark (dense molecular clouds(dust))
Distance - 7,600 light years away
Location - Sagittarius (still in our galaxy)

Have a great day while you ponder the enormity of it all.

About how far away is that nebula? It is certainly a stunner.
It is all so beautiful, I can't thank you enough.
Clear skies, bloodhound31, clear skies.
