The Blue Lagoon

  M8 the Lagoon Nebula

 This star forming region glows from the power of the young star cluster NGC6530 and was taken with Astrodon Narrowband filters.  You can see more of my images at

  1. This would be a breathtaking marvel to observe from out in deep space. It is huge! Thank you so much.

  2. The detail and depth so developed I feel like I’m peering into a hypothetical wormhole……Thanks for your efforts and generosity Ken.

  3. I must agree with the ‘depth’ comment. It feels like you can fly into the nebula and look around inside. Words don’t quite do this image justice, but fantastic comes to mind.
