Wide-field view of the sky around SDC 335.579-0.292

This wide-field view shows a region of sky in the southern constellation of Norma (The Carpenter's Square). At the centre lies the massive star-forming region SDC 335.579-0.292, but this is too obscured by dust to be visible. This is also true for the filamentary network of dust and gas. The star cluster NGC 6134 appears at the lower right and at the upper left the very hot blue star HD 147937 and its surrounding ejected clouds can be seen. This view was created from images forming part of the Digitized Sky Survey 2.
