Starbirth region. Artwork of a stellar nursery, with many proto-stars lighting up the interstellar gas and dust (nebula) from which the stars are forming. Starbirth in such nebulae can be triggered by events such as a supernova explosion, or collisions between nebulae. The resulting collapse of parts of the nebula triggers the formation of stars.
