The Lagoon and Trifid Nebulas (M8 & M20)

The Lagoon and Trifid Nebulas (M8 & M20)

The main thing I wanted to show in this zoomed in portion of a photo is located to the right on the center. It is bright pink and hazy. This is called the Lagoon Nebula (M8) and so absolutely gorgeous. If you zoom in a tad and look up a little bit, you can see the Trifid Nebula. It is a little faint and also slightly pink.

Across from it on the far left side is what appears to be a faint fuzzy patch resembling a red star. This is a cluster, The lighter area at the bottom in part of the Milky Way.
