View of the sky around the multiple star system GG Tauri

This wide-field view shows the sky around the young multiple star system GG Tauri, which appears very close to the centre of this picture. This view also shows a dust cloud and evidence of star formation near the top of the picture. This, like GG Tauri itself, is part of the Taurus Dark Cloud complex, one of the closest star-forming regions to Earth.
