Rare Blue Nebula Image – Awesome

Wonders of this nature are just awesome. A stunningly beautiful image of rare blue Nebula is captured by telescope in Chile(image after the break). Wired Science has a nice post on this

This wispy blue cloud of gas and dust is a star-forming region surrounding the star R Coronae Australis, which is about 420 light-years away. The new portrait was taken with the Wide Field Imager at the La Silla Observatory in Chile. The image, a combination of 12 separate snapshots in three different colors, depicts a young family of stars still embedded in and interacting with the cloud of dust and gas from which they formed.
