Amazing Butterfly Nebula

Amazing Butterfly Nebula

Barnard's dusty nebulae toward the constellation Taurus and the Taurus molecular cloud some 400 light-years away. Included in the nearly 1 degree wide field of view is Barnard 7 (the 7th object in the catalog) at the upper right, next to a dusty bluish reflection nebula. Young variable star RY Tauri is emerging from a yellowish cocoon of dust near top center. Typically a light-year or so across, many of Barnard's dark nebulae are themselves likely sites of future star formation.

This new map shows the density of objects within our Milky Way galaxy. It’s a small section of a larger map, but it shows in exquisite detail the complex patterns of obscuration in the galaxy, due to interstellar dust.
