Hubblecast 109: Diving into the Lagoon Nebula

On 24 April 1990, Hubble was launched into space. To celebrate its 28th year in orbit, some of Hubble’s precious observation time was used to observe the colourful Lagoon Nebula. One of only two star-forming nebulae visible to the unaided eye, this spectacular stellar nursery is not quite the tranquil landscape its name suggests.

This new Hubblecast explores the image in more detail and shows some of the delicate features of this cosmic lagoon.
