Description

Star nursery reveals 'human face' in profile

The nebula's technical name is NGC 3324, but she is also known as Gabriela Mistral, the name of the Chilean poet chosen as the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1945, due to the profile face that appears to have been formed by the gases and dust in the place.
