Our Sun is hanging out with THE BIRTHERS. SOLARIS (our sun) is sitting between Trifid and the Lagoon Nebula in the sky today.
Nebulas are plasma rich star nurseries, where baby stars are born! Like humans, stars are also born at a certain time and place, and their birthplaces are what astronomers call nebulae or star nurseries. The name nebulae came from Latin, and it translates to English as "cloud." The nebulae do resemble a cloud, because of how they appear to us at night.
The Lagoon Nebula (Messier 8 ) is a bright emission nebula in the constellation Sagittarius. It is an active stellar nursery, an area of dust and gas in space where stars are formed. It lies about 5,000 light-years away, near the center of our Milky Way Galaxy in the rich starfields of Sagittarius.
The Trifid Nebula is a colorful combination of nebulae types that unite to create a celestial work of art. Cataloged as Messier 20.
It lies approximately 5,000 light-years away in a nebula-rich, crowded starfield area of the night sky. It is often photographed next to the nearby by emission nebula, M8 (the Lagoon Nebula). Its name means “divided into three lobes”, as the dark nebula in this object creates the apparent “gaps” within the emission nebula portion of the Trifid.
Messier 20 includes a unique combination of an open cluster of stars, an emission nebula, a reflection nebula, and a dark nebula. All of these elements combine to create one of the most stunning deep sky objects in our night sky.
This is not a visual thing, to try to look at in the sky. All you will see is the sun.
When the sun sits next to another celestial feature, like a nebula, we can feel the energy flow of that neighbor in the sun rays, sun codes.
We’re all made from stardust, but it’s in these star nurseries that we’re actually from!
The sun moves into this sky spot right after the December Solstice every year. For those of us in the northern hemisphere, this coincides with the “birth of light” as we move into the cycle of longer days. And Southern Hemisphere, it conincides with summer solstice, full solar expression.
