Didn't get around to setting up a tree this year? No problem, the Spitzer Space Telescope has you covered! Illuminated by nearby star formation, the larger yellowish dots hanging on the Christmas Tree Cluster (NGC2264) neighboring the baby red stars in this cluster are massive stellar infants. Organic molecules mixed in with dust that surrounds the cluster are illuminated as wisps of green. Like falling flakes of snow, the blue dots sprinkled across the image represent older Milky Way stars at various distances along this line of sight. What can be found under this magnificant stellar Christmas tree? Hopefully you and your telescope!
Object Type: Open cluster of stars embedded in a diffuse nebula
