Not visible from the UK as below Sagittarius, but worth keeping an eye upon if observing from southern Europe and beyond, or remotely as here. The nebula is variable and showing nice detail in this shot from Australia. Both stars associated with the nebula are young T Tauri variables (R and T CrA).
