Sagittarius Sunflowers

These three bright nebulae are often featured in telescopic tours of the constellation Sagittarius and the crowded starfields of the central Milky Way. M8, the large nebula left of center is over a hundred light-years across and is also known as the Lagoon Nebula. The colorful M20 near the bottom of the frame is the Trifid. In the composite image, narrowband data records ionized hydrogen, oxygen, and sulfur atoms radiating at visible wavelengths.
