Object Description:
Cometary Globule 12 is a low mass star forming region associated with the cluster and reflection nebula NGC5367. While the cluster and the associated nebula were discovered by John Herschel in 1834, the cometary globule CG12 was discovered only in 1976 on an ESO/SRC Sky Survey plate taken with the UK Schmidt telescope.  Like a comet in the sky, NGC 5367 appears to have a blue nucleus and a brownish tail. Cometary globules are known stellar birthplaces that show a head–tail comination similar to comets. Their heads are dusty, compact and bright-rimmed.

Object Descriptiona:
This region in the constellation Ara consists of emission-, reflection nebulas and obscuring dust lanes. It is lying near the edge of a large molecular cloud and immense expanding bubble of neutral hydrogen gas.
The emission nebula NGC6188 expands roughly 600 light-years across and lies approx. 4,000 light-years away. It is the home of a group of young stars which forms the open cluster NGC 6193. Its stars are very bright
so the interstellar dust is forming a diffuse blue glow which is visible as VdB-H72b.
NGC6164-5 (at the right border) is a bipolar emission nebula surrounding by a massive star. The star is near the end of its life, as a result it is shedding gas. The star's fast rotation and magnetic field, creates the symmetric shape of the bipolar nebula.

Object Description of the the Vela Supernova Remnant:
About 11,000 years ago a star in the constellation of Vela exploded. As gas flies away from the detonated star, it reacts with the interstellar medium, knocking away closely held electrons from even heavy elements. When the electrons recombine with these atoms, light in many different colors and energy bands is produced and shows red and green filaments of expanding excited Hydrogen and Oxygen atoms!

Object Description:
Veil Nebula itself is a large supernova remnant, the expanding debris cloud from the death explosion of a massive star. While the Veil is roughly circular in shape covering nearly 3 degrees on the sky in the constellation Cygnus, this portion of the eastern Veil spans only 1/2 degree, about the apparent size
of the Moon. That translates to 12 light-years at the Veil's estimated distance of 1,400 light-years from planet Earth. In this composite of image data recorded through RGB, Luminance and narrow band filters, emission from hydrogen atoms in the remnant is shown in red with strong emission from oxygen atoms in greenish hues.
