In a Nebula Far, Far, Away...

Birthplace of the Stars

This is an abstract representation of a star-forming region similar to the 'Pillars of Creation' in the Eagle Nebula.

Birthplace of the Stars

Traversing space infinitely vast
the light of stars from ages past
arrives to us and we see at last
the Birthplace of the Stars

Regions of gas and dust so small
collapsing into a swirling ball
soon to burn and outshine all
in the Birthplace of the Stars

God's creation, a masterpiece
filled with wonders that never cease
and yet we see such a tiny piece
of the Birthplace of the Stars

In the vastness of the Universe
possibilities endless and diverse
are we a blessing or a curse
to this speck that we call ours?

David Ruhl

The term "Birthplace of the Stars" refers to both star-producing nebulae and other regions of space where stars are formed.

Star-forming regions are a class of emission nebula associated with giant molecular clouds. These form as a molecular cloud collapses under its own weight. Massive stars may form in the center, and their ultraviolet radiation ionizes the surrounding gas, making it visible at optical wavelengths. Examples of star-forming regions are the Orion Nebula, the Rosette Nebula and the Omega Nebula.
