Caption: Starbirth region LH 95, Hubble Space Telescope image. Large stars within LH 95 generate strong stellar winds and high levels of ultraviolet radiation. This heats the interstellar gas, creating the blue glow seen here. The dark lanes of dust (left and lower centre) are areas that have survived the effects of the stellar winds. Due to the filters used, the hot, bright stars in this image are blue, and cooler stars appear red in colour. LH 95 is in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), some 176,000 light years from Earth in the constellations Mensa and Dorado. Image data obtained by Hubble's Advanced Camera for Surveys instrument, and published in 2006.
