Combined visible and infra-red light images of star forming region Sharpless This nebula is located about light-years away in the direction of the constellation Cygnus. It formed less years ago, making this one of the youngest star-forming regions known.

Infrared cameras have captured a beautiful trail of dust in the Orion nebula. Scientists believe this may be the earliest stages of star formation ever recorded.    https://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn1/541572_596508800370135_933303087_n.jpg

This dramatic new image of cosmic clouds in the constellation of Orion reveals what seems to be a fiery ribbon in the sky. This orange glow represents faint light coming from grains of cold interstellar dust, at wavelengths too long for human eyes.
