A Star-Formation Laboratory
Image credit: NASA/ESA/Hubble Heritage (STScI/AURA)-ESA/Hubble Collaboration

Uploader comment: The dwarf galaxy NGC 4214 is ablaze with young stars and gas clouds. Located around 10 million light-years away in the constellation of Canes Venatici (The Hunting Dogs), the galaxy's close proximity, combined with the wide variety of evolutionary stages among the stars, make it an ideal laboratory to research the triggers of star formation and evolution.
