V838 is a star which, in 2002, had an enormous burst of energy sending a wave of intense light in all directions. This essentially acts as a spherical CAT scan travelling outward from the star, illuminating the pre-existing gas and dust in it's vicinity that would otherwise be hanging in darkness. This is what it looked like in 2006.
NGC 2174, also known as the Monkey Head Nebula, is an emission nebula which lies in the north-east corner of constellation Orion, towards Gemini. This nebula contains an abundance of dense gas knots, which give rise to many new stars. The protrusion in the upper left of this painting features what's known as a Herbig-Haro object - strong jets of gas emitting from the poles of a newly formed star.
