Click on the image for the 'fits' header information. This is a larger view of the 'famous gaseous pillars picture' taken by the Hubble space telescope. The 'Eagle' is the dark area to the left of center. The 'Eagle' is 'flying' sideways. His lower 'wing' makes up one of the 'pillars'. The small dark area below the wing is another 'pillar'. The third 'pillar' is only slightly darkened (the HST image uses special filters). It is parallel to the bottom 'wing' and extends to a fuzzy area in the dead center of this image. The 'new star' is in the fuzzy area, and is visable in the original 'FITS' file of this image. The HST image would need to be rotated by 135 degrees clockwise to match the orientation in this picture.
