The North American Nebula (Gallery Explorer)

Date- 10th Feb 11 Source- http://www.spitzer.caltech.edu/video-audio 'Seen here in visible light, the North American Nebula strangely resembles its namesake continent.

Pushing entirely into the infrared spectrum, we see even more detail in the convoluted dust clouds.'
