👁👄👁 <— Our faces when we saw this image.⁣ ⁣ Roughly 4,000 light-years from Earth, the Lagoon Nebula gives astronomers an excellent opportunity to study young stars. Many infant stars give off high-energy light, including X-rays, and they’re seen here in pink based off data from our @NASAChandraXray space telescope.⁣ ⁣ The combined X-ray data, courtesy of the Mt. Lemmon Sky Center in Arizona, produces this blue and white image.⁣ ⁣ Credit: X-ray: NASA/CXC/SAO; Optical: Adam Block/Mount Lemmon SkyCenter/University of Arizona⁣ ⁣
