Eagle Nebula

I came across this natural phenomenon while researching inspiration for my design journal. The eagle nebula is a young open cluster of stars in the constellation Serpens. The nebula was founded in 1745 by Jean-Philippe de Cheseaux and was named so for its resemblance of an eagle. I thought it was an amazing source of inspiration in terms of potential colour palette and concept in the form of subject matter.

The universe is a vast, unfathomable place, we have not begun to understand the possibilities of the beyond and I have always been inspired and intrigued by this great mystery.
