Nebula Photo Weighs Half a Gigabyte

Hello and welcome to space ponder space photograph of today. I've found a stunning, half a gigabyte photograph with insane detail. It features the giant nebula NGC 2014 and its neighbour NGC 2020, part of a vast star-forming region in the Large Magellanic Cloud , a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way, approximately 163,000 light years away.

It's one of the most photogenic examples of the turbulent images observed by the Hubble Space Telescope in its 30-year lifetime.
