Eagle Nebula – Hubble Palette

Galactic Eagle

The Eagle Nebula (catalogued as Messier 16 or M16, and as NGC 6611, and also known as the Star Queen Nebula and The Spire) is a young open cluster of stars in the constellation Serpens, discovered by Jean-Philippe de Chéseaux in 1745–46. Both the « Eagle » and the « Star Queen » refer to visual impressions of the dark silhouette near the center of the nebula, an area made famous as the « Pillars of Creation » photographed by the Hubble Space Telescope. The nebula contains several active star-forming gas and dust regions, including the Pillars of Creation.
