Eagle Nebula

The Eagle Nebula is a 70 light years by 55 light years nebula that lies 7,000 light years away from Earth. The center of the nebula known affectionately as “The Pillars of Creation” is a place where gravity pulls clouds of gas together to collapse inward where nuclear fusion can ignite and create stars. 406 photos compose this image for a total amount of 15 hours exposure time.
