Fairy Pillar

In honor of the 15th anniversary in 2005 for the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope, NASA released a photograph of the Fairy Pillar, part of the Eagle Nebula. The entire nebula is a stellar nursery where many new stars are forming. At one point, gravity will collapse the nebula inward to the new stars.
