Look at this infrared image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope of an area in our Milky Way Galaxy. In the center you'll see 3 bustling little baby stars - the first to be discovered in this region - because all previous attempts met with too much dust at the core. Spitzer caught it because it uses sharp infrared eyes which can cut through dust like butter.
The center of our Galaxy is hectic - packed with starstuff, gas, dust - and we've always wondered how complex stars formed in such places. So we've known stars - like our star "Sol" - are born in such a nebula, but never able to see them actually forming - UNTIL NOW.
Eyes in space will be watching for a good while.More beauty: Two nebulae and a giant flare on Sol, the star keeping us in its orbit.
