Webb Looks At The Cosmic Cliffs

The Cosmic Cliffs is a region at the edge of a gigantic, gaseous cavity in the star cluster NGC 3324. This image the Cosmic Cliffs from JWST’s NIRCam reveals dozens of previously unseen jets and outflows from young stars. The insets on the right highlight three regions with particularly active molecular hydrogen outflows. In this image, red, green, and blue were assigned to Webb’s NIRCam data at 4.7, 4.44, and 1.87 microns respectively.
