This new image of the reflection nebula Messier 78 was captured using the Wide Field Imager camera on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at the La Silla Observatory, Chile. This colour picture was created from many monochrome exposures taken through blue, yellow/green and red filters, supplemented by exposures through a filter that isolates light from glowing hydrogen gas. The total exposure times were 9, 9, 17.5 and 15.5 minutes per filter, respectively.

"Oh, on the Starship Enterprise / There’s someone who’s in Satan’s guise, / Whose devil’s ears and devil’s eyes / Could rip your heart from you! / At first his look could hypnotize, / And then his touch would barbarize. / His alien love could victimize… / And rip your heart from you! / And that’s why female astronauts / Oh very female astronauts / Wait terrified and overwrought / To find what he will do. / Oh girls in space, be wary, / Be wary, be wary! / Girls in space, be wary! / We know not what he’ll do."
