Caption

Lagoon nebula (M8). This is a huge cloud of gas and dust that glows as the hydrogen gas it contains is ionised by radiation from hot young stars within it. The stars are born in the nebula from the collapse of the gas under its own gravity. The Lagoon nebula lies around 3500 light years from Earth in the constellation Sagittarius.
