The Great Tarantula Nebula

This spidery nebula, known as the Tarantula Nebula, is seen in the top center of this cosmic image. If you look to the lower right of the Great Nebula, a web of filaments contain the famous supernova SN
1987A – with its remnants now illuminating these regions. Many other reddish nebulae are visible in the image, as well as a
cluster of young stars on the left, known as NGC 2100.
