By far the post popular thing I’ve posted, this picture is so amazing that I wanted to try and find something better, so I found this one which shows more of the dust cloud within this nebula. The Seahorse Nebula lies within the Large Magellanic Cloud, 170,000 light years away. The length of the “Seahorse” is approximately 20 light years long, 4 times the distance from our sun to the nearest star, Alpha Centauri.
