I found this beautiful image of the Eagle Nebula (Messier-16) while searching around on the Milky Way Project Talk. In the upper right you can see the famous “Pillars of Creation”. The nebula is a stellar nursery, where bright young stars are forming. You can classify equally beautiful regions of our galaxy now at www.milkywayproject.org
