Latest Eagle Nebula Stories
For the first time, astronomers have produced a fully 3D view of the Pillars of Creation using the Very Large Telescope to capture the iconic billowing dust pillars in new detail and discover never-before-seen features.
In honor of its upcoming 25th anniversary, NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has revisited the site where it captured one of its most iconic images, the three giant columns of cold gas known as the “Pillars of Creation.”
ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) has taken the most detailed image so far of a spectacular part of the stellar nursery called NGC 6357.
The star cluster NGC 6604 is shown in this new image taken by the Wide Field Imager attached to the MPG/ESO 2.2-meter telescope at the La Silla Observatory in Chile.
In 1995, the Hubble Space Telescope's 'Pillars of Creation' image of the Eagle Nebula became one of the most iconic images of the 20th century. Now, two of ESA's orbiting observatories have shed new light on this enigmatic star-forming region.
NASA's best-recognized, longest-lived, and most prolific space observatory zooms past a threshold of 20 years of operation this month.
Today ESO has released a new and stunning image of the sky around the Eagle Nebula, a stellar nursery where infant star clusters carve out monster columns of dust and gas.
The three iconic space pillars photographed by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope in 1995 might have met their demise, according to new evidence from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope.
A new image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope reveals billowing mountains of dust ablaze with the fires of stellar youth. The majestic image resembles the iconic "Pillars of Creation" picture taken of the Eagle Nebula in visible light by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.
