Gas and dust in a region of the reflection nebula NGC 1333, NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image. The cool gas and dust concentrated in this region is generating new stars whose light is then reflecting off the surrounding material, as shown at upper centre. NGC 1333 is located in the constellation of Perseus, the Hero, about 1000 light-years away from Earth.
