Illuminating The Darkness at Barnard 44

Barnard 344 is a dark nebula in the constellation of Cygnus. It’s located close to the star Sadr in the Gamma Cygni Nebula. Barnard 344 is located on the bottom of the image.

This region is very rich of dark and emission nebulae. On the image also VanDenBergh 130, a reflection nebula in this region, can be seen. LBN234 is an emission nebula glowing with hydrogen and sulphur.

The image shown here is very different from the ordinary images that you often see of nebulae because this image is fully taken in the deepred part of the spectrum. Images were made in Hydrogen-alpha (656nm), Sulfur (673nm) and Near-infrared (>807nm). They were combined in a Spitzer satellite like palet that is often used for infrared imagery. — André van der Hoeven

Nearby Dust Clouds in the Milky Way

The yearly ritual of spring cleaning clears a house of dust as well as dust “bunnies”, those pesky dust balls that frolic under beds and behind furniture. NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has photographed similar dense knots of dust and gas in our Milky Way Galaxy. This cosmic dust, however, is not a nuisance. It is a concentration of elements that are responsible for the formation of stars in our galaxy and throughout the universe.

These opaque, dark knots of gas and dust are called Bok globules, and they are absorbing light in the center of the nearby emission nebula and star-forming region, NGC 281. The globules are named after astronomer Bart Bok, who proposed their existence in the 1940’s.
