Another special nebula has been uploaded

Hi all,

After uploading yesterday the beautiful NGC 6164, today we have another nebula that is also the result of the strong mass ejection by a massive star. This nebula has a completely different shape compared with NGC 6164, but the mechanism of formation is very similar. Neither of these nebulae are planetary nebulae, despite their appearance.

This image is a very deep one (23 hours of exposure) and shows RCW 58’s structure with fine detail. You can find it at:
