The Pillars of Creation

The Pillars of Creation are a star forming nebula some 7,000ly away. Because of evidence seen in images taken with the Spitzer Space Telescope in 2007, it is believed that this nebula might have actually been destroyed 6000 years ago, and that we should be able to witness the supernova and the nebula’s destruction a 1000 years from now.
