The region pictured in this image is within our Milky Way galaxy and displays two areas of star formation hidden behind a haze of dust when viewed in visible light. The Spitzer Space Telescope’s ability to peer deeper into dust clouds shows us stellar birthplaces like these, which are officially known only by their catalog numbers, IRAS 19340+2016 and IRAS19343+2026.
