Wide-field view of the Lagoon Nebula

This spectacular image shows the very rich region of sky around the Lagoon Nebula (Messier 8). The Lagoon appears at the centre, the Trifid Nebula (Messier 20) close to the top. Other nebulae, both bright and dark, can be seen elsewhere in the picture as well as several star clusters. This view was created from pictures forming parts of the Digitized Sky Survey 2.
