This picture is incredible interstellar clusters “Pillars of Creation” in the eagle nebula from NASA taken by the Hubble space telescope. It has become one of the most iconic images of the cosmos with telescopes first spotted the cluster in 1995.

In the photo we see a giant dust pillars in enveloping their infrared glow. In the image invisible to the human eye infrared range is artificially illuminated and gives the pillars a striking bluish shade.

First discovered in 1745 by Swiss astronomer Jean-Philippe Loys de Chezeaux., the eagle nebula is about 7000 light years from Earth in the constellation Serpens. By themselves, the pillars are huge. The largest pillar on the left has a length of about four or five light years.

The earliest image of Pillars of Creation was made up of 32 separate photos using only the visible spectrum. It brought emitting pillars of cold hydrogen gas and cosmic dust.
