30 Doradus nebula is a star birth region in the Large Magellanic Cloud.  The image was taken by Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3 in ultraviolet, visible and red light, and this grouping alone spans 100 light years.  Several of these beautiful ice blue stars, at 100 times more massive than our sun, are among the largest known stars.
