OH my god – it’s full of stars!

Aimlessly slouching about the world wide web tonight + being a huge geek = me at the NASA site… “So?” I hear you ask. Well I came across this page:

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Explanation: Shells of ancient supernovas, cocoons surrounding newborn stars, and specks from distant quasars highlight this tremendous vista toward the constellation of Cygnus. The representative color image covers about 10 degrees across on the sky but is only a small part of the Canadian Galactic Plane Survey in radio light. Diffuse bands of ionized gas flow though a dominating region of star formation, located about 6000 light-years away.

It appears that the boffins at NASA update this page everyday with some hubble goodness! – click on the image to visit the site!
Neat hey!
