Imagen obtenida con el VLT del glóbulo cometario CG4

Like the gaping mouth of a gigantic celestial creature, the cometary globule CG4 glows menacingly in this image from ESO’s Very Large Telescope. Although it looks huge and bright in this image it is actually a faint nebula and not easy to observe. The exact nature of CG4 remains a mystery.

Como las fauces abiertas de una gigantesca criatura celeste, el glóbulo cometario CG4 refulge amenazante en esta nueva imagen del VLT (Very Large Telescope) de ESO. Aunque en la fotografía parece grande y brillante, en realidad se trata de una nebulosa débil, difícil de observar. La naturaleza exacta de CG4 sigue siendo un misterio.
