Diving into the Lagoon Nebula | Hubble's 28th Anniversary

On April 24, 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 colorful 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.
