This image shows part of a central nebula, named N44C, in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy to the Milky Way, about 160 000 light-years from the Sun. It is a region of ionised hydrogen gas surrounding an association of young stars. The green colour indicates areas that are particularly hot.
