As Physics Haber, we congratulate Mehmet Hakan Özsaraç for his success. We would like to state that our young people and science lovers expect more of this type of work. We congratulate him once again.

Today NASA has chosen my most recent Lagoon Nebula work as Astronomy Photo of the Day (APOD) It's a great honor for me and my country. I wanted to share this excitement with you. I would like to thank you, my esteemed followers, for your support in making me feel proud 4 times in the past year after I processed and shared the first Hubble image. NASA's Astronomy Photo of the DayYou can reach the link of the ı page from my profile and my story.

The center of the Lagoon Nebula is a spectacular star forming whirlwind. Visible near the image center, at least two long funnel-shaped clouds, each about half a light-year long, were formed by extreme stellar winds and intense energetic starlight. Nearby, an extremely bright star, Herschel 36, illuminates the area.

Vast walls of dust obscure and glow other hot young stars. As energy from these stars flows into cold dust and gas, large temperature differences can be created in adjacent regions, creating shear winds that can cause funnels.

Covering about 10 light-years, this image combines images taken by the orbiting Hubble Space Telescope in six colors. Also known as M8, the Lagoon Nebula is located about 5000 light-years away towards the constellation of Archer (Sagittarius).
