32. 33. PLATE 14: This mosaic from NASA WISE Telescope is of the Soul Nebula. It is an open cluster of stars surrounded by a cloud of dust and gas located about 6,500 light-years from Earth in the constellation Cassiopeia, near the Heart Nebula. 34. 35. PLATE 15: The Keyhole Nebula, part of a larger region called the Carina Nebula NGC 3372, about 8,000 light-years from Earth as seen by NASA Hubble Telescope. 36. 37. PLATE 16: Swirling dust clouds and bright newborn stars dominate the view in this image of the Lagoon nebula from NASA Spitzer Space Telescope.

It is the nearest example of what happens to a star, like our own Sun, as it approaches the end of its life when it runs out of fuel, expels gas outward and evolves into a much hotter, smaller and denser white dwarf star. 30. 31. PLATE 13: An aging star last hurrah creates a flurry of glowing knots of gas that appear to be streaking through space. This close-up image of the Dumbbell Nebula was taken by the JPL-built and designed WFC3 camera, onboard NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. 32. 33. PLATE 14: This mosaic from NASA WISE Telescope is of the Soul Nebula.

Embryonic stars are forming within an ill-fated cloud of dust and gas, which is destined to be eaten away by the glare from the massive neighbor. The cloud is about 8 light years away from the nebula’s central star. This stellar activity is a beautiful example of how the life cycle of stars like our Sun is intimately connected with their more powerful siblings. Residing in the constellation Sagittarius, the Trifid Nebula is about 9,000 light years from Earth. 60. 61. PLATE 28: This image from ESA Herschel Space Observatory shows of a portion of the Rosette nebula, a stellar nursery about 5,000 lightyears from Earth in the Monoceros, or Unicorn, constellation.
