Taken in 2008, the Hubble Space Telescope focused on this area of new star birth in the Large Magellanic Cloud. The stormy looking sea looks to be home to a seahorse, or star horse. Astronomers also call this nebula NGC 2074. The star horse is a dark area floating in background of blues, greens and reds. One day, this dark dusty area will be home to new stars.
NGC 2074 lies about 170,000 light years away at the edge of the Tarantula Nebula.
Hubble images are made up of many smaller images. Scientists then put them together into the images we see. There were no images to fill in the area in the upper right.
