  Coronet: A Star-Formation Neighbor

Coronet: A Star-Formation Neighbor
Image credit: NASA/CXC/JPL-Caltech/CfA

Uploader comment: While perhaps not quite as well known as its star-formation cousin Orion, the Corona Australis region (containing, at its heart, the Coronet cluster) is one of the nearest and most active regions of ongoing star formation. At only about 420 light-years away, the Coronet is over three times closer than the Orion nebula is to Earth.
