IC 2118- The Witch Head Nebula in Eridanus by Scott Rosen IC 2118, is an extremely faint reflection nebula believed to be an ancient supernova remnant or gas cloud illuminated by nearby supergiant star Rigel in Orion. It lies in the Eridanus constellation, about 900 light-years from Earth.

The Pelican Nebula (IC 5070) is located in the constellation of Cygnus, the Swan. Its pillars are being sculpted by the intense ultraviolet radiation from massive stars which have recently formed within the nebula.
Dusty emission in the Tadpole nebula, IC 410, ~12,000 ly away in the northern constellation Auriga. The cloud of glowing gas is over 100 ly across, sculpted by stellar winds & radiation from embedded open star cluster NGC 1893. - Image Credit: WISE, IRSA, NASA; Processing: Francesco Antonucci
Supergiant star Gamma Cygni lies at the center of the Northern Cross, a famous asterism in the constellation of the Swan (Cygnus). Known by the proper name Sadr, the bright star also lies at the center of this gorgeous skyscape, featuring a complex of stars, dust clouds, and glowing nebulae along the plane of our Milky Way galaxy. The field of view spans over 3 degrees (six Full Moons) on the sky and includes emission nebula IC 1318 and open star cluster NGC 6910.
The Monkey Nebula, NGC2174 is a cloud of gas and dust that surrounds the star cluster NGC2175. The colors in this image may look like brush strokes of paint but actually represent specific wavelengths of infrared light. Particles of interstellar dust are warmed by the star cluster in the center of the nebula, which WISE (NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer) represents by the colors green and red. The blue and cyan stars scattered throughout the image are hot compared to the dust.
