The Hubble Space Telescope has captured a stunning view of the Prawn Nebula floating through deep space.

The Prawn Nebula, formally known as IC 4628, is an emission nebula located 6,000 light-years from Earth, in the constellation Scorpius.

Nebulas, or clouds of interstellar gas and dust, form following massive stellar explosions; in turn, this interstellar material gives life to new stars.

Stretching over 250 light-years wide, IC 4628 is believed to be a massive stellar nursery, where new stars are forming.

Scientists classify it as an emission nebula because its gas has been energized, or ionized, by the radiation of nearby stars.
