This image shocases the Lagoon Nebula and the Trifid nebula both of which are in the direction of the center of the Milky Way Galaxy.

The Lagoon Nebula is a giant interstellar cloud in the constellation Sagittarius some 4,100 light years away from us. If it were as close to us as the Orion Nebula, it would fill our night sky.

The smaller Nebula is the Trifid Nebula, a famous star-forming region located in the constellation Sagittarius.This lies about 5,200 light years from Earth and is about 21 light years in Diameter.
