Today’s Image of the Day from the European Space Agency features a special kind of star-forming nursery known as Free-floating Evaporating Gaseous Globules (frEGGs).
The Hubble Space Telescope caught this fascinating look at the early development of new stars when it zoomed in on a cloud that is 7,500 light-years away.
The object, which is officially known as J025157.5+600606, is located in the Soul Nebula in the constellation of Cassiopeia.
