In an image released Wednesday, young stars—pictured sparkling in the Orion Nebula—have been caught in the turbulent throes of formation by the European Space Agency's Herschel space observatory and NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope.

This new view of the Orion nebula highlights fledgling stars hidden in the gas and clouds. It shows infrared observations taken by NASAs Spitzer Space Telescope and the European Space Agencys Herschel mission, in which NASA plays an important role.

This dusty region between the constellations Ophiuchus (the "snake holder") and Scorpius (the "scorpion") contains a colorful cosmic vista. These colors tell some of the story behind the interplay between light and matter in this object.
