Lovely bluish dust clouds that reflect the youthful starlight while compact, deep red crescent shapes are characteristic of glowing hydrogen gas shocked by jets streaming away from newborn stars. This composite image has revealed the faint red strands of emission at the upper right, likely supernova remnant and currently being analyzed by Bo Reipurth (Univ. Hawaii). (Subaru telescope)
