Tarantula is a remarkably large star forming region on the edge of a neighbouring galaxy, the Large Magellanic Cloud. It’s so bright it’s easily visible in binoculars in the Southern Hemisphere. It’s so big that if it were in our galaxy, like the Orion Nebula, it would cast shadows on Earth. Taken over several nights in narrowband as I was competing with the Moon.
