30 Doradus Nebula has been an active star-forming region for 25 million years. Using data from Hubble astronomers first thought they were seeing one star cluster, but then realized they were actually viewing two merging clusters. The Hubble observations were made with the Wide Field Camera 3. The blue color is light from the hottest, most massive stars; the green from the glow of oxygen; and the red from fluorescing hydrogen.
