The Pillars of Creation

The Hubble image of the Pillars of Creation
We have added another amazing astronomy video to our Star Viewer map. The latest video is from NASA's Spitzer Hidden Universe series which is a series of videos from NASA highlighting the discoveries made by their Spitzer Telescope.

The Pillars of Creation is a visually stunning area of the Eagle Galaxy. The pillar structure of the region resembles that of another, much larger star formation region, imaged by Spitzer Space Telescope in 2005 in Cassiopeia, which is designated W5 and usually called "Mountains of Creation".
