How would you categorize this image. Is it of any inteest beyond pretty? Obviously there are many bubbles. What's going on?
Honestly, I don't know what is happening here. If I had to make a guess, I'd say that the clouds are undergoing a period of intense star formation, and the newborn stars are illuminating the clouds from the inside. Some areas where stars could be lighting up the nebula:
"newborn star cluster?":(30x30@126,460)
"another newborn star cluster?":(74x54@335,136)
"yet another group of new stars?":(30x30@365,21)
"probable star cluster forming":(30x30@36,447)
"AND WTF IS GOING ON HERE???":(30x30@299,142)
