The Keyhole Nebula is actually a much smaller and darker cloud of cold molecules and dust, containing bright filaments of hot, fluorescing gas, silhouetted against the much brighter background nebula.

NGC 2207 & IC 2163 are a pair of colliding spiral galaxies about 80 mly away in Canis Major. Both galaxies were discovered by John Herschel in 1835. So far 4 supernovae have been observed in NGC 2207. The most recent encounter peaked 40 Ma. The smaller galaxy is swinging around counter-clockwise, & is now slightly behind the larger galaxy.
