A Superbubble


This superbubble is the nebula LHA 120-N 44 surrounding the star cluster NGC 1929 in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of our own Milky Way. The superbubble is expanding outwards from the cluster of young stars at its center as their radiation sculpts the nebula’s evolution.
