Large gaseous nebula in which stars are forming. The illumination from within creates a three-dimensional effect.

This photograph captures a massive star-birthing nebula in the constellation Triangulum. This nebula consists of a contorted cloud of gases lit by the forming stars within, much like a flame within a lamp.
This is a cool three-dimensional-feeling image that would work well in space illustration or as a layer in a background collage.
This image was taken by the Hubble Space Telescope – NASA. NASA is an Agency of the United States Government, therefore this image is in the public domain.
