NGC6820/NGC6823 in Vulpecula

The radiation of the very young star cluster NGC6832 erodes the surrounding nebula NGC6820, exposing pillars of cold molecular clouds. These clouds very likely contain newly born stars, still hidden by the envelopping dust. The cluster lies about 6000 light years away.
