Colour-composite image of the nebulae NGC 6357 (left) and NGC 6334 (right) as seen by the ATLASGAL survey. NGC 6357 is a diffuse nebula containing the open cluster Pismis 24, home to several very massive stars. NGC 6334 is an emission nebula also known as the “Cat’s Paw Nebula”.

In this image, the ATLASGAL submillimetre-wavelength data are shown in red, overlaid on a view of the region in infrared light, from the Midcourse Space Experiment (MSX) in green and blue.
