A Star Is Born

Hubble Space Telescope has captured a dynamic, star-forming region from outer space. A belt of gas and dust is surrounding a new star cluster dubbed “NGC 346.” The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) said that the dust masses found in the black region of the belt were headed toward the cluster. This was discovered in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC), 210,000 light-years away from the earth. NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) released this photo on November 10.
