The Fighting Dragons of Ara (NGC 6188) is a beautiful, large emission nebula currently above us in the Southern Hemisphere in the early evening. Photographed last night in narrowband, the oxygen is seen as blue and the hydrogen as green. The long tendrils of dust and gas stretch and swirl into core where bright new stars are birthed into existence, each with their own solar systems, planets and moons.

It kind of reminds me of Michaelangelo’s “Creation of Adam” with the fingers touching, except God an Adam are reptilian humanoids.

I also switched up my telescopes for a close up view of the brightest part of the emission nebula which is quite nice too, click to enlarge:
