This is a new NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image of the Lagoon Nebula. The region is filled with intense winds from hot stars, funnels of gas, and energetic star formation, all embedded within an intricate haze of gas and pitch-dark dust. The bright star located in the dark clouds at the center of this image is known as Herschel 36. This star is responsible for sculpting the surrounding cloud, stripping away material and influencing its shape. READ MORE(Credit: NASA, ESA, J. Trauger)

The Cat's Paw Nebula (NGC 6334) comes alive in this infrared image from the Spitzer Space Telescope. A new study of this nebula finds that magnetic fields influence star formation on a variety of scales, from hundreds of light-years down to a fraction of a light-year - Credit: S.
