Omega Nebula ~  Sculpted by stellar winds and radiation, the star factory also known as Messier 17 lies some 5,500 light-years away in the nebula-rich constellation Sagittarius.  The sharp, composite, color image shows faint details of the region's gas and dust clouds against a backdrop of central Milky Way stars. (Subaru Telescope (NAOJ), Hubble Space Telescope)
