A nebula known as "Spider" green fluorescent lights in an infrared Spitzer Space Telescope image of NASA and the Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS). The spider, the official name of IC 417, is close to a much smaller object called NGC 1931, not shown in the picture. Together, the two are called "The Spider and the Fly". The spider, located about 10,000 light years from Earth in the constellation Auriga, is clearly a site of star formation.
