the most astounding fact by neil degrasse tyson. andy showed me this and it clicked.
5000 light years away, in the famous star-forming region of Omega Nebula, stars continue to form. The dark dust in the center were created in the atmospheres of cool giant stars and from debris of supernova explosions. Radiation from nearby stars cause gases to glow red and blue. The points of light are young stars, some brighter than 100 Suns. Dark globules mark even younger systems, just now condensing to form stars and planets. The picture spans about 3000x the diameter of our Solar System.
star forming regions...mmmm so purdy ♥
