From The BBC online

The detailed image was taken by the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope in Chile.

Its nebulae - the thick clouds of gas around young and old stars - house active star-forming regions.

Their brilliant glow is caused by the intense heat generated when new young stars are born, stars that burn very brightly but live relatively short lives when compared with our own Sun.

Due to its unique shape, the cluster on right of the image has been nicknamed the Dragon's Head Nebula, though its official name is the catchy NGC 2035 (new general catalogue).

Olivier Hainaut, an astronomer who worked at the Chile observatory for many years, said that a lot of imagination was needed to see a dragon's head.
