It’s Springtime and it marks the return of the Milky Way core and its plethora of nebulous regions. Yayyy 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾. This is my first project in the Milky Way’s core of the season. Meet the Eagle Nebula (M16 or Messier 16) and it’s surrounding nebulous regions. M16 is located some 7,000 lights years away from Earth in the constellation of Serpens.
