Yup, HIGHLY doubt this is a real picture even though it is said to be. makes me sad! Why can't the real outer space be as colourful as a fake picture like this? :/ --- if it's any consolation, this could be the sky on another planet.
The colorful Eagle Nebula taken at the National Science Foundation's telescope on Kitt Peak. Located in the constellation of Serpens, the Serpent, the Eagle Nebula is a very luminous open cluster of stars surrounded by dust and gas.
