Nothing Like Intense Star Formation Activity

Click the picture to go to the APOD site, read the description at the bottom of the image if you like, then click the picture a couple times to get the enlarged image. 
What a nice clear image to poke around in.  The folks in this galaxy have some great views of Nebula which are those pinkish areas.  Anyway, the whole thing, billions of stars and trillions of planet sized objects (dust) not even a pin prick on the sky.  I wonder what goes on there.

  2. I'm with Opus! It's so pretty and vast and I hope the leftards never figure out how to ruin that too!
