Check out this incredible picture of the Great Orion Nebula. It's not from the Hubble Space Telescope. It's the work of amateur astrophotographer Marcus Davies, and it just one of the finalists for this year's Astronomy Photographer of the Year
The Great Orion Nebula photographed by Marcus Davies. This amazing image captures the superheated gas and dust of the closest star-forming region to Earth, 1350 light years away.

Those are fantastic! I really wish I had equipment to do this type of photography. Tonight the persiads shower has begun, I have seen a fireball, I would love to have taken a picture of it! Thanks for posting, and kudos to the photographer, great job!

Stunning pics- thanks for sharing.
I don't get the whole "colored in photoshop" statement that another member made.... I have seen various different photo's of the 'Pillars of Creation" and colors are always the same... Are you saying that space is not colorful at all?
I'm having a hard time understanding what this means...
