Horsehead Nebula

Horsehead Nebula

One of the most recognizable nebulae in the sky, the Horsehead Nebula is an opaque dust cloud in front of an emission nebula of electrons recombining with protons to form hydrogen atoms. To the left is the Flame nebula, and just under the horsehead bluish light from the nearby stars shows as a reflection nebula.
