NGC 604 in Galaxy M33 (ground-based image)
This is a site where new stars are being born in a spiral arm of the galaxy. Though such nebulae are common in galaxies, this one is particularly large, nearly 1, 500 light-years across.
The nebula is so vast it is easily seen in ground-based telescopic images.
