Brandywine General Store


A Museum Quality Art Print of the Pillars of Creation a part of the Eagle Nebula for sale by Brandywine General Store. These towering pillars are about 3 light years tall, the small figure at the bottom right is probably a baby version of the Pillars of Creation. The pillars are bathed in blistering ultraviolet light from a group of young, massive stars located just above what is in view in this picture from the Hubble Space Telescope. Stars are continuously being born deep inside these pillars which are made of cold hydrogen gas laced with dust. The pillars of creation are part of the Eagle Nebula, a vast star forming region about 6500 light years from Earth. Picture #47
