Reflection nebula N30B. Hubble Space Telescope image of the Double Bubble reflection nebula (N30B, upper centre). The twin bubbles of gas and dust surround a cluster of hot, young stars. The gas and dust shines by reflected starlight from this cluster. The Double Bubble is part of a much larger complex of gas and dust called DEM L 106, the wispy filaments of which fill the field of view. This complex is located in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of our Milky Way that lies around 160,000 light years from Earth in the constellation Dorado.
