 A mosaic portrait of various stars shows a picture taken by Spitzer Space Telescope

A stellar picture was taken by NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope is a thing of beauty. The image taken by the telescope shows the image of various stars born from the same dense cloud of gas and dust. Some of the clusters are older than the others and are more evolved as well. Because some stars are younger and others are older, which makes it a family portrait.

In the image, a green-and-orange shade fills the entire image. The deep green shade is a faraway Nebula or a cloud of dust and gas in space. In the image, it appears that green shade is flowing from white light. However, that white light is not just white. It is made up of blue, green, orange and red infrared colors, which is not visible to the naked eye. Each of the color represents a different wavelength. Also, the dust which has been heated by the radiation of the stars gives a red glow.

On the left-hand side of the image, a dark filament runs through the image. This filament is spewed with baby stars, which are yet to evolve. The young stars are in yellow and red colors (dots). The dark area is also known as Cepheus C and is a dense concentration of gas and dust.

The dark area of the filament will eventually be dispersed as the stars evolve, which will eventually explode later. The region is called Cepheus C because it lies in Cepheus, and is near the constellation Cassiopeia.

Another nebula can be seen in the image on the right-hand side of the image. With a star in it, it is known as the Cepheus B. The image shows various types of stars. From infants to parents and to grandparents, this image shows an entire family of stars in it.
