Combined images of visible and infrared light from the star-forming region Sharpless 2-106. This nebula is about 2,000 light-years away in the direction of the constellation Cygnus. It is half a light year in diameter 2 years-long light. The central star of this nebula is more than 15 times the mass of our Sun formed less than 100,000 years ago, making this one of the youngest forming regions known stars.
