Description

Star-forming region Cat’s Paw Nebula. It’s located at some 4,200 to 5,500 light-years away in the milky way, in the constellation Scorpius. The Cat's Paw Nebula is one of the most active stellar nurseries in the night sky, nurturing thousands of young, hot stars whose visible light is unable to reach us. Well what remain is what you see ;-)
