Description

This is a false color image of the group of Bok globules in IC 2944 commonly known as Thackeray's globules. Red in the image corresponds to the WISE M band image, and green corresponds to the 2MASS H band. The central globule appears to contain as many as 6 possible protostars, the brightest of which appears to peak in brightness in WISE images in the 12000-22000nm range, suggesting a possible surface temp of 132-242 degrees Kelvin.
