What do you see in this image?

 

This is the Berkeley 59 cluster, a region of space that is part of the NGC 7822 star forming complex. This colorful cloud of dust and gas travels across the galaxy some 3,000 light-years from Earth. Many of the stars in this region are just babies, no more than a few million years old (they’re not even toddlers on the cosmic timescale). The red glow comes from warm dust that has been heated by the young stars. This glowing cloud makes for a rather unique image.

 

I see a dragon, what about you?
