Not a large spider, but an astonishing area of the night sky. The image shows the area in the constellation Dorado (the Dolphin fish or Swordfish), around the Tarantula Nebula, a huge area of gas and dust where stars are being formed, which is in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a nearby galaxy outside our Milky Way, and closely associated with it. There are a lot of firsts for me in this image.
