NGC 6514 - Trifid Nebula (M20)is an H II region located in Sagittarius.Its name means 'divided into three lobes'. The object is an unusual combination of an open cluster of stars; an emission nebula (lower, red portion), a reflection nebula (upper, blue portion) and a dark nebula (the apparent 'gaps' within the emission nebula that cause the trifurcated appearance) Viewed through a small telescope, the Trifid Nebula is a bright and peculiar object.
