The Trifid Nebula in Sagittarius is two types of nebula in one, visible by both reflected and ionized light from a nearby star cluster. The two processes acting together produce the swirling colors and shapes we see from 5,200 light years away. From the dust and gas in this cloud, new stars are always being born.

Take someone with you on a journey to where stars are born. The clarity of color in the image will evoke deep space, and they'll want to hang it on the wall!
