M16 – The Eagle Nebula is consists of a star cluster and many emission nebulae and dark nebulae. The newborn stars in the Eagle Nebula are very hot, which illuminate M16’s hydrogen gas as seen in the Pillars of Creation, made famous by the Hubble Space Telescope. These intense pillars are slowly evaporating under the intense glare of the nearby massive, newborn stars. These pillars may appear relatively small within the nebula itself, but in actuality they are larger than our entire solar system.
