Star creation region
The Pillars of Creation are set off in a kaleidoscope of color in NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope’s near-infrared-light view. Inside the Eagle Nebula around 6500 light years away, this is a region where young stars are forming – or have barely burst from their dusty cocoons as they continue to form.
