NGC 6523: The Lagoon Nebula

Estimated to be between 4,000 to 6,000 light years from the Earth, in the direction of the Sagittarius constellation. It is classified as both an emission nebula and an HII region. The Lagoon Nebula was discovered by Guillaume Le Gentil in 1747 and is one of only two star-forming nebulae faintly visible to the naked eye from mid-northern latitudes. Seen with binoculars, it appears as a distinct oval cloudlike patch with a definite core. [image via]
