Combined visible and infra-red light images of star forming region Sharpless 2-106. This nebula is located about 2,000 light-years away in the direction of the constellation Cygnus. It is 2 light-years long and 1/2 a light-year across. The central star of this nebula is more than 15 times the mass of our Sun. It formed less 100,000 years ago, making this one of the youngest star-forming regions known.
