Looking at this new Hubble image of the Tarantula Nebula overwhelms my vision and brain. Especially when you consider this is just a fraction of the Large Magellanic Cloud, "a small satellite galaxy 170,000 light years away from the Milky Way."


From NASA: "Like lifting a giant veil, the near-infrared vision of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope uncovers a dazzling new view deep inside the Tarantula Nebula. Hubble reveals a glittering treasure trove of more than 800,000 stars and protostars embedded inside the nebula."
