Lupus 3 cloud

This ultra HD video shows the cloud Lupus 3 where new stars are forming along with a cluster of brilliant stars that have already emerged from their dusty stellar nursery. It lies about 600 light years from Earth in the constellation of Scorpius (The Scorpion). It is likely that the Sun formed in a similar star formation region more than four billion years ago.
