Emission nebula IC 2944. Near the center of the nebula lie the small, dark molecular clouds rich in cosmic dust called Thackeray's globules, which will go on to form 1-2 medium-sized stars just like our Sun. Image spans about 70 light-years. [1280 x 837] (Image Credit: Fred Vanderhaven) via /r/spaceporn
