Star Formation in the Tadpole Nebula - What's all of the commotion in the Tadpole nebula? Dusty emission in the Tadpole nebula, IC lies about light-years away in the northern constellation of the Charioteer (Auriga). The cloud
A towering "mountain" of cold hydrogen gas laced with dust is the site of new star formation in the Carina Nebula. The great gas pillar is being eroded by the ultraviolet radiation from the hottest newborn stars in the nebula.
The Wonders of the Carina Nebula “This broad image of the Carina Nebula, a region of massive star formation in the southern skies, was taken in infrared light using the HAWK-I camera on ESO’s Very Large Telescope. Many previously hidden features, scattere
"a photograph of a star forming, courtesy of Hubble… --This is the most amazing image from space I have ever seen :)" - I can't believe this is even a photograph! It looks like a painting!
The Orion Nebula (also known as Messier 42, M42, or NGC 1976) is a diffuse nebula situated in the Milky Way, being south of Orion's Belt in the constellation of Orion. It is one of the brightest nebulae, and is visible to the naked eye in the night sky. M42 is located at a distance of 1,344 ± 20 light years. and is the closest region of massive star formation to Earth. The M42 nebula is estimated to be 24 light years across.

The Tarantula Nebula region imaged with HAWK-I with the Adaptive Optics Facility | This image of the dramatic star formation region 30 Doradus, also known as the Tarantula Nebula, was created from a mosaic of images taken using the HAWK-I instrument working with the Adaptive optics Facility of ESO’s Very Large Telescope in Chile.

The Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy to our own Milky Way Galaxy, is home to one of the largest and most intense regions of star formation known to exist anywhere in our galactic neighborhood — the Tarantula Nebula. This image from the NASA/ESA
