More than 100 young, massive stars shine within the heart of the Swan Nebula.

Why it matters: These types of observations allow scientists to map the nebula, revealing new information about the evolution of this active, star-forming region of the Milky Way.

  • A new photo taken by the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) shows off the clouds and young stars of that nebula more than 5,000 light-years away from Earth.

"It's the first time we can see some of its youngest, massive stars and start to truly understand how it evolved into the iconic nebula we see today."
