Another Hubble classic

Here's another classic Hubble image. This one shows a star forming nebula, not in our own Milky Way galaxy, but in the nearby Small Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of our own.

The image looks reminiscent of the Orion Nebula and is a similar star-forming region.

More versions of the image are available on the HubbleSite, like this zoomable version. Also check Stuart's 'slightly tweaked' version on Cumbrian Sky and see if you can spot the difference! Nicely done.
