Description

It is a large nebula that we present to you this time, NGC 6357.We took a very long time to choose with which colors to present it to you, it was complicated to agree.Also called "War and Peace" because of its appearance, which we are always looking for... (In fact you would have to see this nebula in Infra-red to spot a dove on the left side and a skull on the right part....) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NGC_6357#/media/File:Cosmic_%E2%80%98Winter%E2%80%99_Wonderland.jpgIt is located in Scorpio about 6500 light-years away, it is a cluster of clusters of massive and bright hot young stars surrounded by dark gas disks. There are also many bubbles or cavities, created by radiation and the ejection of materials from the surface of massive stars and explosions of super novae.
Within it, we find the Pismis 24 cluster, which is near the "heart" of this nebula (the light blue part). Pismis 24-1, as bright5 as 776,000 suns, is the largest and brightest of the visible stars in this cluster, and is among the most massive and luminous stars known. It is at least one triple star, according to recent observation from the Hubble Telescope.
