Caption: Emission nebula. Infrared image of a new star cluster (yellow and green stars) at the centre of an emission nebula. Clouds (red) of gas and dust in the nebula are glowing as the hydrogen it contains is ionised by the radiation of the new stars. This nebula is located within the Milky Way. Image taken by the Infrared Array Camera on the Spitzer Space Telescope.
