Stellar Nursery
about 415 ly away
an
excellent example
of how some stars
are likely formed
and
one of the most
beautiful naked
eye objects
in the sky.

Appearing as
a Tiny Dipper,
most people can
make out five or six,
but it actually contains
hundreds of baby stars
9 of which are named
- the Seven Sisters
and their parents
- from Greek
Mythology.

The entire cluster
is enveloped in
a faint blue nebulosity,
the remains of the cloud
from which they formed.
