A telescopic image of the hometown of the star group called the “Seagull Nebula”, known by its name as a seagull in flight, is composed of dust, hydrogen, helium and traces of heavier elements, all of which are hot and vibrant, sparking a new cosmic life.

Details were captured by the European Southern Observatory’s VLT Survey Telescope, one of the largest in the world to observe the night sky, according to the Daily Mail.

The European Space Agency said, “The main components of the Seagull nebula are three large clouds of gas, the most distinctive is the Sharpless 2-296, which form the wings, while Sh2-296 extends about 100 light years from the top of the wing to the other, and displays the glowing materials and dust corridors in the stars Bright.

Over time, the cloud shrinks and begins to crumble on a number of nuclei inside the cloud, caused by gravity, and the amazing heat causes a nuclear fusion, which results in a stellar ignition.

It is also the radiation from these tiny stars that gives clouds their colors by ionizing the surrounding gas and causing them to glow. The seagull nebula is located about 3,700 light-years away in one arm of the Milky Way galaxy.
