Sagittarius C by JWST
Sagittarius C by JWST This image of Sagittarius C captured by JWST measures 50 light-years wide and covers the Milky Way Galaxy's dense center. An estimated 500,000 stars shine in this image. A vast region of ionized hydrogen, shown in cyan, dominates much of the image. At left-center a cluster of protostars — stars that are still forming and gaining mass — are producing outflows that glow like a bonfire. The image was released on Nov. 20, 2023.
