If you look in the northern hemisphere’s summertime sky, you’ll see the lovely swan winging through the night.  This image of Cygnus-X ( a giant star-forming region in the Milky Way) was captured by the Herschel Telescope with combined infrared data.  Herschel is a European Space Agency mission.  Its science instruments are provided by a consortia of European institutes, and NASA is a participant in Herschel.
