LBN 777 also known as Vulture Head Nebula or Baby Eagle Nebula, taken on December5th 2020 from my Creedmoor site. This nebula is part of the Taurus Molecular Cloud. These giant molecular clouds consist of cosmic dust and molecular gas, with an average density of 100-1000 particles per cubic centimetre. These clouds are dark, not very dense and cold as well. The clouds can loose their gravitational balance quite easy due to some gravitational impact. That time their material can condense forming into small dense parts, called bok globules. These globules keep getting more and more dense with increasing temperature, therefore new stars - and their planets - born from their material.
