    This is the massive young cluster Westerlund 2, in the center of the RCW 49 star-forming nebula. It's a perennial favorite!

    Also, this image reveals a stellar-wind "bow shock" that we had previously MISSED in our 2008 study of this region! Can you spot it?

    Wow... how did we miss that? RCW49--now with 30% more bowshocks!

    I think the bowshock is the faint circle above and slightly to the right of the cluster, yes?

    I was thinking it was the very small yellow curve all the way into the upper left corner, just to the right of the star?
