I can’t share turkey with you today but I can share a deep look by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope of the Swan Nebula. When you’re zoomed out, look for the red part of the image near the left edge. This part of the nebula has a turkey look to me. What else can you find as you explore the image?Also called the Omega Nebula, the Horseshoe Nebula, or the Lobster Nebula, M17 is a region of star formation. The nebula glows from the light and radiation of hot, blue stars buried deep in the nebula. The watercolor-like image shows ridges of gas and dust; all the ingredients needed for making new stars.
