Hubble examines open cluster BSDL 2757

(ORDO NEWS) — NASA‘s Hubble Space Telescope captured an image of the open cluster BSDL 2757. In the image, bright blue-white stars can be seen breaking through rusty-red gas and dust clouds.

Hubble captured this scene as part of its study of how dust in the Large Magellanic Cloud obscures ultraviolet light in four different star-forming regions in this irregular galaxy.

The researchers studied early stage stars that are still accumulating mass from the clouds around them. As gas and dust spiral towards a young star, it emits ultraviolet light.

By analyzing how this light interacts with dust, astronomers can better understand the properties of dust in different environments.

The blue, green, and orange colors in this image represent the corresponding colors in the visible light spectrum. Red represents light in the near infrared region of the spectrum.
