Silence is the most ominous sound the Doctor ever makes.  On the slow walk back to his little blue box from the Naismith’s parlor, he’s utterly silent, unnaturally, and Wilf fills in the vacancy with anxious chatter because this kind of quiet, it’s like a pause between explosions—accentuated on either end by cacophony.

M8: The Lagoon Nebula
Image Credit & Copyright: Ignacio Diaz Bobillo

This beautiful cosmic cloud is a popular stop on telescopic tours of the constellation Sagittarius. Eighteenth century cosmic tourist Charles Messier cataloged the bright nebula as M8. Modern day astronomers recognize the Lagoon Nebula as an active stellar nursery about 5,000 light-years distant, in the direction of the center of our Milky Way Galaxy. Hot stars in the embedded open star cluster NGC 6530 power the nebular glow. Remarkable features can be traced through this sharp picture, showing off the Lagoon’s filaments of glowing gas and dark dust clouds. Twisting near the center of the Lagoon, the small, bright hourglass shape is the turbulent result of extreme stellar winds and intense starlight. The alluring color view was captured with a telescope and digital camera while M8 was high in dark, rural Argentina skies. At the nebula’s estimated distance, the picture spans over 60 light-years.
