Eagle of another kind

The Eagle Nebula, recent photo from the Hubble ST after an upgrade. Simply astounding level of detail. Of course, this is what it looked like 6000 or so years ago. A Supernova has likely wiped these out now.

The Eagle Nebula made me fall in love with astronomy. Get a decent enough telescope and it's literally mind blowing.

Yeah, I've got to get Elite.
