The War and Peace Nebula, also known as NGC 6357 (left), and the Cat¿s Paw Nebula, also known as NGC 6334 (right), seen by Esa's Herschel space observatory. The War and Peace Nebula hosts several clusters of young, bright and very massive stars that are energising the mixture of gas and dust It lies about 8000 light-years away. The Cat¿s Paw Nebula lies about 5500 light-years away

Here lie familiar shapes in unfamiliar locations. On the left is an emission nebula cataloged as NGC 7000, famous partly because it resembles our fair planet's continent of North America. The emission region to the right of the North America Nebula is IC 5070, also known for its suggestive outlines as the Pelican Nebula. Separated by a dark cloud of obscuring dust, the two bright nebulae are about 1,500 light-years away. At that distance, the 4 degree wide field of view spans 100…

This image from Nasa's Spitzer Space Telescope shows a stellar nursery containing thousands of young stars and developing protostars near the sword of the constellation Orion. Massive stars light up the Orion nebula, the bright region near the centre of the image. To the north of the nebula is a dark filamentary cloud of cold dust and gas over five light years long, containing ruby red protostars that jewel the hilt of Orion's sword   Photograph: Spitzer Space
