ESO VLT Image: Scarlet Nebula Gum 15

This stunning view of the scarlet nebula Gum 15 was captured by the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile.

The image, released on Nov. 3, shows a deep black lane of dust across the face of Gum 15.

The nebula itself is shaped by stellar winds from its stars and the nearby star cluster ESO 313-13.
