In IRDC G11.11-0.11, thick clouds of dust and gas are congealing into stars so dark that humans living there would see an empty night sky. The image shows vast glowing fields of gas and dust, indicating that much of this dust is heated by forming stars. The centers of some clouds, such as the snake-like structure on the upper left, are so thick and cold that they are dark even in infrared light. The unusual red sphere below the snake is actually a supernova remnant.
