Lupus 3 (Dark Nebula) : Picture

This evocative image shows a dark cloud where new stars are forming along with a cluster of brilliant stars that have already emerged from their dusty stellar nursery. This cloud is known as Lupus 3 and it lies about 600 light-years from Earth in the constellation of Scorpius. It is likely that the Sun formed in a similar star formation region more than four billion years ago. This picture was taken with the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at the La Silla Observatory in Chile and is the best image ever taken of this little-known object.

This wide-field view shows a dark cloud where new stars are forming along with cluster of brilliant stars that have already burst out of their dusty stellar nursery. This cloud is known as Lupus 3 and it lies about 600 light-years from Earth in the constellation of Scorpius. It is likely that the Sun formed in a similar star formation region more than four billion years ago. This view was created from images forming part of the Digitized Sky Survey 2.

This chart shows the location of the dark cloud Lupus 3 in the constellation of Scorpius. This map shows most of the stars visible to the unaided eye under good conditions, and the location of the cloud and newly formed hot young stars is marked with a red circle. The brightest two stars in this object can easily be seen with a small telescope or binoculars and form an attractive double star. The dark cloud itself only shows up in longer exposure images.
