The largest, most violent star forming region known in the whole Local Group of galaxies, the cosmic arachnid sprawls across this spectacular view against the background of the dense swarm of stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud.

The Tarantula Nebula is more than a thousand light-years in diameter, a giant star forming region within nearby satellite galaxy the Large Magellanic Cloud, about 180 thousand light-years away. Within the Tarantula (NGC 2070), intense radiation, stellar winds and supernova shocks from the central young cluster of massive stars, cataloged as R136, energize the nebular glow and shape the spidery filaments.

Around the Tarantula there are other star-forming regions with young star clusters, filaments, and blown-out bubble-shaped clouds.

The Large Magellanic Cloud is a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way. At a distance of about 50 kiloparsecs, the LMC is the second or third closest galaxy to the Milky Way, after the Sagittarius Dwarf Spheroidal and the possible dwarf irregular galaxy known as the Canis Major Overdensity.

The image was taken from a very dark site in the South African desert.

Amazing print!

I have purchased multiple prints from Astrography and have them throughout my house. I chose Fine Art prints, and could not be happier. The paper is WAY better than typical poster paper, and while not exactly what I would call a matte print, it eliminates the reflectiveness of a gloss print while retaining great detail.

We purchased 4 large fine art prints and are very happy with the quality of the prints.... impressive detail and color.
Great service, and the owner quickly responded to questions (even over the weekend). He also thought along with us, offering custom print sizing.
