The many shades of the Tarantula Nebula. Stars are being formed here on such a massive scale that if it were to be as close as the Orion Nebula, it would take up enough of the night sky that’s equivalent to 60 full moons. The images that are zoomed out show this massive nebula within the Large Magellanic Cloud. The Tarantula Nebula is 160,000 light years away and can be seen in the Southern Hemisphere.
