Celestial Fireworks! 🌟 Like a Fourth of July fireworks display, this glittering collection of stars located 20,000 light-years away from Earth looks like a red, white & blue aerial burst.

Spotted in 2009 by our @NASAHubble Space Telescope as colorful and serene sight, this environment is anything but that! Ultraviolet radiation and violent stellar winds have blown out an enormous cavity in the gas and dust enveloping the cluster of huge, hot stars. Most of the stars in the cluster were born around the same time but differ in size, mass, temperature and color.
The course of a star's life is determined by its mass, so a cluster of a given age will contain stars in various stages of their lives, giving an opportunity for detailed analyses of stellar life cycles. The cluster seen here contains some of the most massive stars known. These huge stars live fast and die young, burning through their hydrogen fuel quickly and ultimately ending their lives in supernova explosions.

Star clusters provide astronomers with important clues to understand the origin of massive star formation in the early, distant universe.

@mohamed.nasro

هدهي نجوم عبار عن شموس مثل شمسنا تحتوي على كواكب مثل مدارنا شمسي ويمكن ان تكون فيها حياة المخلقات التي الذي تنتمي لدالك كوكب مكونا بنفس مدة موكوانة لدالك كوكب ونحنو بشر مخلقين من طين و ارض مكونا من تراب

@pistolpeteg14 😂 people are buying this garbage! 20,000 light years!? Each light year is 5.88 trillion miles!!!

Is this picture edited ?

@astroradka

@paul7999913 Heeeey. Don't call religious people stupid, you're lowering yourself to the level of haters. I'm a scientist AND a believer, one can be both.

@flat_earth_movement

@theglobeisflat the stars circling Polaris is not possible on the globe model!! 😂

@agmmilne

@ciccimattini Ça va. Je n'essaiais qu'une pleasanterie assez faible au sujet du clavier d'ordinateur.

@agmmilne

@yuwalou78 Je suis tout-a-fait d'accord. Je ne voulais que dire que c'est souvent difficile d'obtenir une cédille du clavier d'ordinateur. Presque autant difficile qu'essayer de tapper cette message quand l'aide-épellation anglaise veux changer presque chaque parole. (Mais je ne peux pas accuser le clavier d'avoir une mauvaise âme.)

@astronomy.chemical

@juniorvieiradawes that account is official so it is not possible that photo be fake

@astronomy.chemical

@flyingupthere_ thanks .i hope you so!

@babetwan_

@astronomy.chemical omg it will and that's mine too:)

@astronomy.chemical

@flyingupthere_ i hope that my dream one day ll come true

@astronomy.chemical

@mattpap123 i am not sure but Nasa maybe found that with maths equations

@astronomy.chemical

Incredible pic! Hello Nasa would you reply me in one quastion? What kind of qualifications have to have one person that want to join in Nasa?

@thanos_215

Hey, @nasa .. how come when y’all go swimming in outer space, and y’all go “live “, you can’t see not even ONE of these? 🧐🤔🤥
