This breathtaking visible-light image, taken with the Gemini South telescope, looks as though it is ready to flutter off the screen.

This apparently wispy object is an outflow of gas known as the Chamaeleon Infrared Nebula—so named because it is bright at some infrared wavelengths of light, although it can also be seen in visible light, as in this view.

Hidden at the core of this reflection nebula, and at the center of this image, is the engine of the nebula, a low-mass star (less massive than our sun) that is eclipsed by a dark vertical band.

This ethereal image, captured from Chile by the international Gemini Observatory, a program of NSF's NOIRLab, looks as delicate as a butterfly’s wing.

It is, however, a structure known as the Chamaeleon Infrared Nebula, which is located near the center of the mammoth Chamaeleon I dark cloud, one of the nearest star-forming regions in our Milky Way.
