Star Formation In The Rosette Nebula
Herschel's latest image reveals the formation of previously unseen large stars, each one up to ten times the mass of our Sun.

The Rosette Nebula resides some 5,000 light years from Earth and is associated with a larger cloud that contains enough dust and gas to make the equivalent of 10,000 Sun-like stars.

Each colour represents a different temperature of dust, from -263ºC (only 10ºC above absolute zero) in the red emission to -233ºC in the blue.
