Caption

Nebula Sh 2-106, Hubble Space Telescope (HST) image. Combined optical and infrared image of the compact star-forming region and emission nebula Sharpless 2-106 (Sh 2-106). A newly-formed star (S106 IR, centre) is heating the surrounding nebula, causing hydrogen to glow (blue). The polar jets from this star create the observed bipolar symmetry. This region is 3300 light years from Earth, in the constellation of Cygnus. Image data obtained with the HST's Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) instrument. Image published in 2011.
