Halloween In Space: Creepy Entities Discovered In The Universe
As Halloween approaches, we look to the mysterious depths of the universe and find ghostly apparitions, spectral hands, skulls, wizards and witches. Or at least these are the descriptions applied by NASA to the jaw-dropping observations they have made.
NGC 2080,nicknamed "The Ghost Head Nebula," is one of a chain of star-forming regions lying south of the 30 Doradus nebula in the Large Magellanic Cloud. 30 Doradus is the largest star-forming complex in the local group of galaxies. This "enhanced colour" picture is composed of three narrow-band-filter images obtained by Hubble on March 28,2000.
