APOD: The Fairy of Eagle Nebula (2013 Sep 29) Image Credit: The Hubble Heritage Team, (STScI/AURA), ESA, NASA http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130929.html Explanation: The dust sculptures of the Eagle Nebula are evaporating.

The greater Eagle Nebula, M16, is actually a giant evaporating shell of gas and dust inside of which is a growing cavity filled with a spectacular stellar nursery currently forming an open cluster of stars. The above image in scientifically re-assigned colors was released in 2005 as part of the fifteenth anniversary celebration of the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope. http://heritage.stsci.edu/2005/12b/ http://spacetelescope.org/images/heic0506b/ http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/releases/2005/12/image/b/ Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=130929 #APOD
