    Hello all, I am curious as to what makes this plume a different color than most of the others that I have seen on here? Most on here are red but this one is orange and yellowish..

    Hi megadave2002 and welcome to MWP

    I think the yellow/orange colors come from a lot of hot young stars close together.

    Happy hunting ! 😄
