Caption: Emission nebula N44. Optical image of the emission nebula N44 in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). An emission nebula is a region of starbirth. It glows red due to the ionisation of the hydrogen gas it contains by radiation from hot young stars. Image obtained by the Wide Field Imager (WFI) camera on the Max Planck Telescope at La Silla Observatory, Chile.
