Is this a cluster of stars or something else entirely?

    My gut reaction was to label this a star cluster, but it seems surrounded by small bubbles. I came here to see to find out what it really is.

    Looks like a weird kind of "burst" bubble to me, though I'm no clusters will probably be smaller and appear blue.

    This is an amazing example of a bubble that has created a horde of other bubbles around its edge. It's a sort of foaming star formation region. Well spotted!
