A newly formed star illuminates the cosmic clouds around it in this new image obtained at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile. Dust particles in the huge clouds surrounding the HD 97300 star diffuse their light, just like the headlights of a car in a fog, creating the reflection nebula IC 2631.

An image from the University of Jena and the European Space Observatory shows the first photograph of a planet (B) beyond our solar system and the star, GQ Lupi (A) around which it orbits. The planet is thought to be one to two times as massive as Jupiter, according to the scientists who imaged it. It orbits a star similar to a young version of our Sun.
