The nebula is around the star cluster NGC 1929, which lies within the Large Magellanic Cloud, a small satellite galaxy of our own Milky Way. The image that show one such region, which surrounds the star cluster NGC 1929, was taken by using the European Southern Observatory’s Very LargeTelescope, located at the Paranal Observatory in Chile’s Atacama Desert.The NGC 1929 star cluster contains hot young stars that are emitting intense ultraviolet light and causing the gas to glow. The nebula around this cluster, officially called LHA 120-N 44 (or N 44 for short), contains what astronomers call a superbubble. The massive shell of material that makes up the superbubble extends roughly 325 by 250 light-years across.
In comparison, the nearest star to our sun is located just over four light-years away.
