Young, hot stars light up the Orion nebula in the above false-color image, released February 20, based on infrared data from NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope.

This nebula—located 1,500 light-years away from Earth—is a stellar nursery. It contains newly formed massive stars (bright white, center) in an area called the Trapezium Cluster. The nebula is also full of stars in the making (red).
