The IC348/NGC1333 Region
Hidden and mysterious. Great swaths of dust disguise this direction in our galaxy. This great molecular cloud harbours the formation of new solar systems. However, facination with the field lies not with what is seen, but instead by the intimated hints of activity. Subtle glows of pink and blue do little to cast warmth on a field that shows the structure of the cold interstellar medium. To the left the cluster and surrounding bluish reflection nebula of IC348 punctuate the darkness. To the right the strange and ornate concentration of
NGC 1333 looks as a miniature peacock amid dark and foreboding clouds.
