This new image from the Wide Field Imager (WFI) on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at the La Silla Observatory in Chile reveals a cloud of hydrogen and newborn stars called Gum 41. In the middle of this little-known nebula, brilliant hot young stars emit energetic radiation that causes the surrounding hydrogen to glow with a characteristic red hue.

This chart shows the location of a cloud of hydrogen and newborn stars called Gum 41 in the large southern constellation of Centaurus. This map shows most of the stars visible to the unaided eye under good conditions and the location of the nebula itself is marked with a red circle. This object is part of the larger Lambda Centauri Nebula. Gum 41 is very faint and was only discovered photographically in the mid-20th century.
